{detailed description}This second volume of the Pictorial History of the RAF tells of the tremendous contribution that the Royal Air Force made to victory in World War II.
Officially released information, including the results of research not available to earlier historians, has enabled John W. R. Taylor and Philip J. R. Moyes to compare with unprecedented clarity the qualities of the aircraft used by both sides in World War II. We are shown how Bomber Command's offensive, largely ineffective up to the autumn of 1941, was so changed by the introduction of secret new equipment, formidable new aircraft and bold new tactics that it was able to pave the way for victory in the west. Other chapters take the reader to North and East Africa, the Far East, over the Atlantic - wherever the Royal Air Force and its allies waged and won the war in the air - and shows clearly why the Royal Air Force was unbeatable in the face of what should have been impossible odds.

In this edition the size, format and photographs of the original volume have been changed.
