During the First World War, observers and aerial gunners who flew with the Royal Flying Corps and Royal Naval Air Service were treated as somewhat inferior personnel to the pilots, establishing a systemic bias, CG Jefford argues, that continued for decades. This detailed analysis of non-pilot aircrew describes the role of observers, navigators and gunners and their ever-changing training and management through two world wars, the Cold War period and into the present century.
