The Royal Air Force was founded on 1 April 1918. To celebrate the centenary of the world's oldest independent air force, St James's House has produced this engaging, thought-provoking and beautifully designed hardback book. A high-quality, large-scale, coffee-table-style publication, 100 Years of the RAF provides a rich photographic record of the air force's past, present and future. Researched, written and designed to the highest of standards, this fully illustrated book delivers a compelling historical record of one of Britain's most revered institutions; commemorating the achievements of those who have served, recognising the commitment of today's RAF servicemen and servicewomen, and providing inspiration to the next generation. The RAF's centenary will be marked with a host of major events and celebrations throughout 2018, and 100 Years of the RAF is no exception, paying tribute to all those who have worn air force blue.
