Description - The Decisive Campaigns of the Desert Air Force, 1942-1945 by Bryn Evans
AUSTRALIAN AUTHOR Compared to the RAFs Fighter and Bomber Commands, the Desert Air Force (DAF) is far less well known, yet its achievements were spectacular. DAF led the way in North Africa and Italy in pioneering new tactics in close Army-Air Force co-operation on the battlefield, DAF and Allied air forces gave Allied armies in North Africa and Italy a decisive cutting edge. While the Axis forces used the many rivers and mountains of Tunisia and Italy to slow the Allies advance, DAF was there to provide that extra mobile firepower the artillery from the sky. They were the first multi-national air force, and the first to introduce air controllers in the front lines of the battlefield. With first-hand accounts by veteran airmen form Britain, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and the USA, this book reveals the decisive victories with which DAF won the war over North Africa, the Mediterranean and Italy in 1942-45. AUTHOR: Bryn Evans writes extensively across a wide range of categories, be it business management, travel, military history or fiction. He was runner-up in the Catherine Cookson Short Story Competition and has been published in many journals. He is the author of With the East Surreys in Tunisia, Sicily and Italy 1942-45 published by Pen and Sword Military in 2012. He lives in Australia. 32 b/w illustrations
