The 100-year history beautifully chronicled in The Royal Air Force defies the scope of this review. I highly recommend it.
Peter Mersky, Aviation History
This sumptuous but very reasonably priced book describes 100 years of RAF operations... It is thoroughly recommended to serious historians and the many thousands of former RAF service men and women without whom none of these accomplishments could ever have been made."
Hundreds of photographs depict the fleet's evolution from fabric-covered biplanes to jet-powered strike aircraft.
Air & Space Smithsonian
Highs: Well laid out, stunning photos and well researched.
Lows: None really
Verdict: If you have any interest in the RAF then this is a must have book of the first 100 years of service.
The photographs are numerous and well chosen, vividly showing the RAF's combat, transport, and reconnaissance aircraft. The work serves as a comprehensive study of the British Royal Air Force and its long history of service to its nation and world.
