Although an autobiography of a Marshal of the R.A.F. and former Chief of Air Staff, this substantial volume amounts to a history of the development of air power from the First World War through the Second. A vigorous writer, Sir John is quite frank in expounding his strategic and other disagreements with various Allied leaders and officers in the course of his career.
