Comments: A complete history of the Royal Australian Air Force in action - written for anyone with an interest in aviation, the air force, or aircraft in general.
In 1915 the Australian Flying Corps, the predecessor of the Royal Australian Air Force had its first combat operations in Mesopotamia. In 2002 the RAAF was again operating in that same area where Lieutenant Merz was the first Australian airman fatality in 1915.
During the intervening years men and women of the RAAF have served over the sands of the deserts of North Africa and the Middle East, the skies of Europe and the fetid jungles of New Guinea and Asia. They have served with distinction and bravery in all the major theatres and campaigns of both world wars, and in Korea, Viet Nam and Iraq.
This book is a tribute to those men and women of the RAAF.
