Overview
-

The basic concept is a series of books each of which will focus on one RAF Command during World War Two. Format for each one will be the same, which in outline will comprise:

1. Introduction - outline of the Command and its predecessors in the period up to 1939.

2. Command history 1939-1945. This will be divided into sections either by role or operation, the exact composition of these sections will of course depend of the Command (for example, Battle of Britain for Fighter Command). This section will include information panels on topics such as: a. Commanders. b. Aircraft. c. Orders of Battle. d. Group overviews.

3. Outline history of the Command post 1945.

4. Appendices, including airfields, squadron histories, reading list, heritage trail (what can you see now).
