For a hundred years the Royal Air Force has been at the forefront of the UK's defenses, protecting its allies, attacking its enemies, and, in the 1950s and 1960s, providing a key part of Britain's Nuclear Deterrent.

This book examines the history of the RAF from the biplanes of the First World War, through its finest hour in 1940, the dawn of the jet age, and up to today's hi-tech aircraft, including the emerging role of the unmanned aerial vehicle. Enriched with personal accounts and a wealth of photographs, this book provides a concise introduction to the world's first independent air force.

Julian Hale read History at Lancaster University and completed an MA on the RFC and RAF in the Middle East during the First World War. In 2012, he joined the RAF Museum and cataloged the Jack Bruce Collection, an archive of First World War and inter-war aircraft and personnel images. He is now the Assistant Curator for the Museum's Centenary Program.He lives in the UK.
