About This Book

1 April 2018 will see the hundredth anniversary of the formation of one of the UK’s primary and best-respected armed forces: the Royal Air Force. Born from the Royal Flying Corps and Royal Naval Air Service, whose service – mainly in reconnaissance – in the First World War was exemplary, the RAF has since helped lead the world in the development of aviation and air warfare. From the fighters and bombers of the Second World War, through to the early jet age aircraft and into modern stealth, pilotless and incredibly high-tech vehicles, the last hundred years’ development has been astronomical, and the human story no less impressive. Here Peter Jacobs gathers the most poignant objects of the RAF’s proud history and displays them together here, in full splendid colour, for the first time. Aircraft, memorials, uniforms, equipment – it’s all here, ready to be explored.
