Abstract:

The Royal Flying Corps (RFC) and the Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS) were the precursors of arguably the finest, most efficient and certainly the oldest, independent air arm in the world - the RAF. The RFC was formed in 1912, combining the Air Battalion of the Royal Engineers and the Naval Air Organization, and embracing a Central Flying School and Royal Aircraft Factory. Two years later, just before the First World War, the RNAS was created as an independent unit. By then it was already predicted that battles for supremacy of the air by armed aircraft were only a matter of time. This book.
