Description
The Royal Air Force is synonymous with its heroic achievements in the summer of 1940, when Winston Churchill's famous "few"—the Hurricane and Spitfire pilots of RAF Fighter Command—held the Luftwaffe at bay in the Battle of Britain. But within the span of a hundred years, military aviation has transformed from the daredevil to the heroic to the mundane, dominated by computers and pilotless drones. Here the author of such popular histories as Fighter Boys and Bomber Boys chronicles the side-by-side evolution of the warplane and the military pilot, paying tribute to a dashing, celebrated figure whose time has come and gone.

"In this superb, pacy, often moving portrait of brave young men and women maintaining their sang-froid against hopeless odds, Patrick Bishop has done full justice to his subject, and confirmed himself as one of our finest popular military historians."—Mail on Sunday (London)
