Royal Air Force – The Official Story

The Royal Airforce is often talked about in our family.  My husband and his sister grew up on RAF bases as his Dad was in the services.  I often hear tales of where they lived, and various stories.  Which is why I could not resist reviewing the book Royal Air Force – The Official Story to learn more of the history behind one of our forces.

About The Book

royal air force

Royal Air Force – The Official Story is the official history of the oldest airforce in the world.  Covering the horrors of the First World War. When pilots were open to the elements in aircrafts made of wood and fabric.  To the air battles of the Second World War, all the way through to current day.

The book is filled with stories and history and amazing photos including

Second World War

The Cold War

I have only looked at parts of this book, but just looking through at the pictures alone, just makes you realise what the service men and women have gone through and still do. I have heard real life stories first hand, and seen documentaries many times before.  If you know someone with a history in the RAF or a fondness for history this is a great book, definitely one to treasure.
