Description

This second volume of the Pictorial History of the R.A.F. tells of the tremendous contribution that the Royal Air Force made to victory in the Second World War.

 

Officially - released informations, including the results of research not available to earlier historians, has enabled the two authors to compare with unprecedented clarity the qualities of the aircraft used by both sides in the Second World War. We are shown how Bomber Command's offensive, largely ineffective up to the Autumn of 1941, was so changed by the introduction of secret new equipment, formidable new aircraft and bold new tactics that it the West. Other chapters take the reader to North and East Africa, the Far East, over the Atlantic - wherever the Royal Air Force and its allies waged and won the war in the air - and shows clearly why the Royal Air Force was unbeatable in the face of what should have been impossible odds.

À PROPOS DE CET AUTEUR
John W.R. Taylor & Philip J.R. Moyes

John William Ransom Taylor O.B.E., Hon. D.Eng., F.R.Ae.S., F.R.Hist.S., A.F.I.A.A. ( June 8th, 1922 - December 12th, 1999 ) was educated at Ely Cathedral Choir School ( King's School, Ely ) and Soham Grammar School ( both in Cambridgeshire, England ).


He trained as a draughtsman and joined Hawker Aircraft in 1941. There he worked on the development of the Hurricane fighter and its successors. His specialisation was rectifying design defects.


He joined Jane's as Editorial Assistant on Jane's All the World's Aircraft in 1955 and four years later he took over as Editor. Until the late 1960's he edited this volume with virtually no editorial support but his love of aviation was such that this was a challenge he enjoyed.


He retired as Editor in 1989, just as the Iron Curtain obscuring the Soviet Bloc's technology started to lift. John W.R. Taylor, who lived to the age of 77, was a master of a parallel art to Kremlinology, he could deduce the performance of Soviet military equipment from blurred photographs.
