Overview
-

Spanning a century, this book investigates Scotland's contribution to military flying in Britain. Throughout the past one hundred years, Scottish aviators have led the way in both peace and war, with Scotland providing the airfields for some of the most famous operations in British aviation history, including those against Tirpitz during the Second World War. With a wealth of previously unpublished accounts from air and ground crew, fliers and non-fliers, this is a comprehensive and extensively researched tribute to Scotland's major role in military aviation.
