RAF Squadrons:- 2nd Edition
|PUBLISHED (THIS EDITION):||February 2003|
|INSIDE:||Photographs & maps|
Since it was first published in 1988, 'RAF Squadrons' has become the major reference work that accurately and comprehensively records the historical details of the RAF's basic fighting formations - its Squadrons. This new edition brings the work up-to-date and includes additions and amendments that have resulted from new research and information. Twelve appendices serve as a unique reference point, with two of them, one keyed by aircraft type, the other by location, providing essential cross-references to the listing of each squadron's movements and equipment. Another innovative feature of RAF Squadrons is the presentation of a set of fifty-three maps on which are included over 2,500 locations mentioned in the text. As well as the relatively familiar UK airfields, it is now possible for the historian to locate all the aerodromes used by RAF Squadrons in Europe, Africa and Asia, in times of war and peace.
. . .this book is fun as well as a priceless source of information. It is user friendly, beautifully presented and quite irreplaceable. The amount of work that went in to producing it is mind blowing, and I am really pleased to keep it on my shelf. - CROSS & COCKADE INTERNATIONALThis staggering book, packed with just so much useful information that it is a 'must' for all modellers and aviation enthusiasts.
