by Tom Docherty
An illustrated history of RAF aircrew training in the UK during WW2.

Illustrated with many historic photographs, this impressive book contains a wealth of detailed information about all of the RAF aircrew training establishments during the Second World War, providing a reference resource that could prove valuable to historians and researchers.

This book is the culmination of 20 years of research and writing on the part of Tom Docherty, who has compiled this comprehensive history of RAF Aircrew Training in the UK during World War Two. 

Tom has gathered an impressive amount of material, including first-hand accounts from many former aircrew, ground staff and instructors, along with reproductions of ground plans, crests, log books and other memorabilia, plus many photos.

The book salutes the remarkable achievement of the dedicated staff of the RAF’s wartime training establishments in turning out over 90,000 trained aircrew in just a five-year period.

It is also a tribute to the many airmen who lost their lives in the course of training, either in accidents or as a result of enemy action during operational training sorties or air raids.
