In this appraisal of the RAF's operations during the Second World War, John Terraine shows how the small, inadequate force of 1939 grew in influence and effectiveness to take up a position of honour and importance ('the right of the line') within the armed forces by the end of the war. The comprehensive volume describes the build-up to hostilities and all the actions of the war from early tests in France to the strategic air offensive over Germany.
