We Speak From the Air: Broadcasts of the R.A.F.
Men of the R.A.F. describe their own experiences in their own words. These accounts of operations over Germany, France, Holland, Belgium, Britain, Norway, Italy, the North Sea, the English Channel and the Atlantic give the human stories behind the official communiqués, and show the great range and effectiveness of Britain's air power.

     The narratives are selected from over 280 broadcasts, given anonymously by the R.A.F. and W.A.A.F. during 1941.
