At the end of the First World War, British power in the colonies was at an all-time low. That was until a ragtag band of visionaries, including Winston Churchill and T.E. Lawrence, proposed that the aeroplane, the wonder weapon of the age, could save the empire. Using the radical strategy of air control, the RAF tried to subdue vast swathes of the Middle East, Asia and Africa.Wings of Empire is a compelling account of the colonial air campaigns that saw a generation of young airmen take to the skies to battle against warlords, jihadists and hostile tribes. bropught out in paperback to coincide with the centenary of Hugh Trenchard, the author of Air Power, becoming head of the RAF on 31 March 1919, marking the start of the whole experiment, this book chronicles the full story of the RAF’s most extraordinary conflict.
