Review; RAF Centenary Experience by James Holland
Description from GoodreadsRAF 100 celebrates and commemorates 100 years of the Royal Air Force. With unique access to the RAF's historic archives, James Holland uses photographs and documents to bring the story of the people, planes and missions to life as never before. From its genesis in the horrors of the First World War, when pilots were open to the elements in craft made of little more than wood and fabric, to the infamous air battles of the Second World War, through to the life- saving missions carried out in today's trouble zones, RAF 100 looks at the men, women and aircraft that are at the heart of this great service.
My Thoughts on the Book
While it was well researched, I almost felt it was only scratching the surface a little bit, but then again, if it wasn't a condensed version of 100 years of history, it would probably have been over a thousand pages. It was a bit fun looking at the photos though.
