Fading Eagle: Politics and Decline of Britain's Post-War Air Force

by

Fading Eagle: Politics and Decline of Britain's Post-War Air Force Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Post-war, the RAF continued its role as defender of Soviet air attack and means of delivering the nuclear deterrent. Despite this, change in politics led to policies which resulted in the weakening of the RAF. When the Cold War ended, western nations were determined that modern warfare was at an end, air power became sidelined despite being relied upon since.

Synopsis:

A comprehensive look at the rise and fall of British air power from a more critical than usual angle.
