    Malcolm Fife's wonderfully researched, well written and nicely illustrated book opens with chapters on Drem (known at the time as West Fenton and then RAF Gullane) in the First World War and between the wars, but most of its contents deal in depth with RAF Drem (and HMS Nighthawk, which was its name during a period of use by the Fleet Air Arm.   In that respect, the RAF’s achievement transcends its great contribution to military victory. It laid the foundation for the enduring peace we enjoy today. Patrick Bishop is one of Britain’s leading military historians.

Very entertaining story of the between the wars fighters of the RAF. Each model/type is given it's own chapter with the design genesis and history. Well illustrated,each aircraft has a serial number list and a listing of planes flown by squadron with the marking colors for each squadron/5(8).

In doing so, the book dispels the notion that airpower alone is effective in small wars and irregular conflicts—and reveals the importance of the “boots-on-the-ground” human component in waging unconventional air warfare, both in the days of the RAF’s vaunted air control and in our own time.5/5(2).

In April the RAF celebrated its first hundred years. And yet its very survival seemed highly questionable in the decade that followed the end of the RAF between the wars book World War.

RAF aircraft in WW1 were often painted with camouflage, The same with WW2. But between the wars, it seems, from the images I can find at least, as if they were mainly silver in colour (I assume an Aluminium based dope was applied to the fabric, just like airships?).

The de Havilland DH Dragon Rapide was a British short-haul passenger airliner of the s. Designed by the de Havilland company in late as a faster and more comfortable successor to the DH Dragon, it was in effect a twin-engined, scaled-down version of the four-engined DH Express.

Newton. Published in'RAF Between the Wars' is No 3 in the Vintage Warbirds series. The book is a collection of excellent well captioned monochrome photos. A small number of the pics show naval aircraft, possibly to show types that were used by both services.

The books' strengths are in putting events and people in context. It does have the odd howler (Napoleon wanted to redo the streets of Paris, it was Napoleon III who did, or the "turning into a woman" medical condition) so you need 4/5.
