No, it stands on it's own as a history.
Any additional comments?
I was a little disappointed at the speed the book rattles through the RAF's long and illustrious history. The author paints his picture with very broad strokes covering the major battles with some detail but completely leaves out a lot - he virtually skips from the Korean War to the Falklands for instance. Also, do not expect there to be a lot of technical detail about the aircraft either and a lot of the great workhorses of the RAF are not mentioned at all. Good superficial history but a lot missed out.
