Johnson grew up and was educated in the East Midlands, where he qualified as an engineer. He served as an Assistant Engineer at Ilkeston and latterly to the Chigwell Urban District Council at Loughton. A sportsman, Johnson broke his collarbone while playing rugby, an injury that later complicated his ambitions of becoming a fighter pilot. Johnson had been interested in aviation since his youth and applied to join the RAF. He was initially rejected, first on social, and then on medical grounds; he was eventually accepted in August 1939.

After that the author's personal experience runs out (he was a spitfire pilot) and the book becomes a list of wars that the air services (in particular the RAF) has won without much help from any other fighting service, along with a list of pilots and their kill-scores. Thus a fairly typical RAF view of the world of warfare. Very little on helicopters, the V-bomber force, modern fast jet tactics (though apparently RAF Harriers won the Falklands War), or air logistics.

Ever wonder why flying circuses of huge numbers of planes grew up in the first world war. Why did airforces forget the reasons in World war two and have to relearn the power of the big wing formation in the battle of britain? Why do modern jets fight in pairs? This book is a well written run through the broad history of air combat showing why certain tactics developed. It covers air engagements from the First World War up to Vietnam. It is written in a non-technical and non-military way which is appealing to the layman, but the strategic analysis is excellent.
