The Birth of the World's First Air Force

Richard Overy

The first German bombing raids took place on British cities in 1917, and the following spring Britain amalgamated its Army and Navy aircraft into a separate and independent British air force. Richard Overy's succinct account of this turning point in modern warfare describes the political and personal rivalries that shaped the RAF's foundation and its significance in the development of air power in Britain, Germany and the United States.
