Royal Air Force 1939-45 Official history in 3 vols boxed set | Militaria | WARSTUFF
Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing

These three volumes are the official record of the RAF during WW2 and were produced by two authors, Dennis Richards and Hilary St George Saunders, who had access to all official documents and records. As such the books give a detailed description of events and the progress of the Air War in all theatres.

The books, titled Vol 1 The Fight at Odds (399 pages) Vol 2 The Fight Avails (365 pages) & Vol 3 The Fight is Won (393 pages), were published by HMSO (His Majesty's Stationery Office) in 1953 originally and then were reprinted (by the HMSO) in 1975 and issued as this boxed set.

In each volume is a detailed account of the RAF in action, interspersed with personal accounts of the fighting and contrasting information on the German actions in parallel to create a graphic picture of events.

There are detailed maps, charts and appendices covering particular stages in the conduct of the War, both in Europe and in theatres throughout the World, together with information on both the RAF's aircraft and those of the Axis forces including Squadron/unit designations. The books are an invaluable source of information for the serious Historian or simply anyone wishing to read about this conflict in detail.

The books are in good condition, there is some slight vertical creasing to the spines from being read but other than a slight age discolouration of the edges of the pages extending some 2mm in from the spines the pages, maps and charts are otherwise as new. The box is similarly in good undamaged condition with a slight age discolouration to the box top.
