Description - RAF 100 by James Holland
RAF 100 celebrates and commemorates the 100-year anniversary of the Royal Air Force. Officially endorsed by the RAF, and with unique access to the their historic archives, the world-renowned broadcaster James Holland uses photographs and documents to bring the story of the people, planes and missions to life as never before.
From its genesis in the horrors of the First World War, when pilots were open to the elements in craft made of little more than wood and fabric, to the infamous Battle of Britain of the Second World War, through to the life-saving missions carried out in today's trouble zones, RAF 100 looks at the men, women and aircraft that are at the heart of this great service.
