About this Product

During the middle years of the Second World War the Royal Air Force constituted the only section of the British armed forces in Europe which was routinely on the offensive. Its aircraft and operations have been voluminously dealt with by historians; but its uniform and flying clothing have received only moderate attention. In this fine addition to the Osprey series, Andrew Cormack explores the fascinating history of the uniforms of the RAF throughout the Second World War, in a text accompanied by numerous contemporary photographs and eight full page colour plates by Ron Volstad.
