Usually quick to see the possibilities of new technology, Winston Churchill, as First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911, was an early champion of the military use of aeroplanes, supported the creation of an independent RAF in 1918, and even took flying lessons himself. This detailed analysis charts his impact on the development of military aviation in the first half of the 20th century and his relationships with key airmen such as Hugh Dowding and 'Bomber' Harris.
