Summary
"Bringing together leading researchers on Canadian air power, On the Wings of War and Peace captures the history of the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) during the first decades of the Cold War--a period which marked the zenith of air force accomplishments in peacetime Canada. This collection traces the many decisions and activities that defined the RCAF in the two decades between the end of the Second World War and the rearticulation of the RCAF as part of the unified Canadian Forces in the mid-1960s. The volume covers topics that go beyond straightforward flying operations, examining policies that drove operational needs and capabilities and the personnel, technical, and logistical functions that made those operations possible. With contributions written by former RCAF members who have both expert and personal knowledge of their topics, On the Wings of War and Peace brings new perspectives to the RCAF's role in shaping the modern Canadian nation."-- Provided by publisher.
