* A detailed, thoroughly researched account of this neglected aspect of British operations in World War II. * Traces the history and evolution of close air support from the Great War through to the war in the Western Desert. * Draws on both official records and the personal records of those who participated in these operations.
Vic Flintham has researched British military aviation for over 50 years. He has written numerous articles, a number of standard aviation references on post-war conflicts, a highly praised account of the RAF in the Middle East between the wars and co-authored Combat Codes describing wartime unit codes.
An outstanding work which should be on the book shelves of anyone interested in military air power in the Second World War in particular.-- "Journal of Aeronautical History" (7/5/2022 12:00:00 AM)
