The R.C.A.F. Overseas: The First Four Years; The Fifth Year; The Sixth Year
POWER, C. G; GIBSON, Colin; CLAXTON, Brooke
A comprehensive look at the RCAF's activities during the Second World War. The volumes covers events such as the Battle of Britain, the air offensive over northern France, fighter operations after Dieppe, convoy patrols and interceptions, the Battle of the Atlantic, preparations for invasion, the Italian Campaign, etc. The Fifth Year and The Sixth Year were printed in smaller numbers, making them scarcer, so that a complete set is hard to acquire.
