1st ed., 1943. Ix + 252 pp. D.j., 22 x 14cm. Some loss to d.j., o/w V.G. This book was written with the object of showing the tremendous difficulties which confronted those who were connected with the Air Ministry during the years between the end of the First World War and the beginning of the Second. The author gives an outline of the development of the RAF since the demobilisation of 1918, and shows how it was kept alive by the strenuous efforts and unceasing vigilance of a small but devoted band of workers at the Air Ministry. Published in 1943 during World War II, this book provided much valuable information concerning the history of our relations with Germany during the few months previous to the outbreak of this War.
