About this title


From the battle of France to the Gulf War and Bosnia, the RAF has been in the forefront of the action. Its air and ground crews have accomplished feats both at home and abroad and heroic deeds that live on in the Service's proud history. In this work, RAF personnel recount their experiences in prose and verse to produce a rare insight into RAF life, from the beginning of the Second World War to the 1990s. There are recollections of life in the RAF including training, World War II fighter and bomber missions, prisoners of war, post war mercy flights and active service in various conflicts. It is illustrated with photographs of aircraft and personnel, interspread with classic aviation cartoons - 60 years of RAF history and heroism are encapsulted in this book of eyewitness accounts.
