Aviators have always seemed different from soldiers and sailors – more adventurous, questing and imaginative. In both world wars air aces dominated each side’s propaganda, capturing hearts and dreams.
Writing with verve, passion and sheer narrative aplomb, Patrick Bishop brings us a rich and compelling account of military flying from its heroic early days to the present.

A flying history of RAF flying!
Would you try another book written by Patrick Bishop or narrated by Michael Tudor Barnes?
What did you like best about this story?
The personal recollections of pilots.
Do you think Wings needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
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.
