This ground-breaking book explores the fascinating development of RAF logistics, from its origins at the end of the First World War to the RAF's withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2014. It is the fruit of twenty-five years of archival research by a former Logistics Officer, and features first-hand accounts from current and former military personnel.
