The Royal Air Force has defended Britain s skies and those of her allies since the early part of the 20th century, following the tradition of the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Naval Air Service. Spawned from both the British Army and the Royal Navy, the RAF fought hard to maintain its independence after the successes of the First World War. It was not until the Second World War, however, that the RAF was able to demonstrate its true worth. This fascinating DVD, over two hours long, combines rare and unseen footage with newly shot film and expert opinion to tell the story of these momentous years, revealing tales of inspiration and bravery.
