The Birth of the RAF by Richard Overy

In 1918 the RAF came into being – against the wishes of both the army and navy who wanted to retain control of their own air arms. Richard Overy describes the RAF’s role in the First World War and how it survived the following years. Published to mark the centenary, this is a fascinating story of the RAF and its place in British history.
