This title first appeared in 2001 to universal acclaim, quickly went out of print and has remained so since. The author, meantime, has continued his research and the result is this updated edition, over half as long as the first, with stacks of new photographs. Absolutely essential reference for all those interested in military aviation.


"…tells the important story of the guys in the back. For years WWI aviation history researchers have focused on single seat fighter aces whose exploits brought medals, fame and perks never known by men in the trenches, and by flying men whose work did not bring the same opportunity for victory. Wing Commander Jefford has gone to considerable lengths to correct that historical oversight.

- Over the Front

"This mammoth book is a beautiful tribute to non-pilot air crewmembers in the British military services."
