Publishers Description: This volume is an oral history of the Royal Airforce from 1918 to the present day, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the founding of the youngest of the three British armed services. With the inclusion of eye-witness accounts, it records the role of the RAF in World War II, and, particularly, the Battle of Britain and the desert battles of North Africa, as well as in the Falklands and in the Gulf War. Through original interviews with air and ground crew, the spirit and comradeship, the stress, courage, isolation, vulnerability and the wonderment of the wartime flying experience is explored. Poems of the airmen involved are included. Max Arthur has also written "Above All, Courage", "Northern Ireland Soldiers Talking" and "Men of the Red Beret".
