Gripping eyewitness stories from eighty years of British flying in war and peace
Max Arthur, bestselling author of FORGOTTEN VOICES: THE GREAT WAR, presents this moving collection of first-hand accounts of life in the Royal Air Force, from 1918 to the present day.
LOST VOICES OF THE ROYAL AIR FORCE records the role of the RAF in World War II, and, particularly, the Battle of Britain and the desert battles of North Africa, as well as in the Falklands and in the Gulf War. Through original interviews with air and ground crew, the spirit and comradeship, the stress, courage, isolation, vulnerability and the wonder of the wartime flying experience is vividly explored.
Max Arthur is acclaimed for his speciality in sourcing first-hand recollections of the twentieth century, particularly the First and Second World War. He is the author of many bestsellers including 'Forgotten Voices of the Great War' and 'Forgotten Voices of the Second World War' which were both written in association with the Imperial War Museum.
He has presented two television documentaries based on his books: The Brits Who Fought For Spain for the History Channel and 'Dambusters'.
Arthur was recognised in the 2013 New Year Honours with an OBE for his services to military history.
