This book is a compilation of official instructions to pilots on aerial combat techniques from the First World War through to the end of WWII. It is an authentic and authoritative perspective on the development of aerial warfare over its first 30 years.
Signed at the book launch at the RAF Museum in 1978 by the Symposium Panellists, this is a fascinating book to dip into for those top tips necessary to stay alive in a dog-fight and survive long enough to become an ace. The Battle of Britain signatures were added later in personal visits to the pilot’s homes making this a unique copy.
