Bolts from the blue: from Cold War warrior to Chief of the Air Staff

Bolts from the blue: from Cold War warrior to Chief of the Air Staff

Johns, Richard, Sir, author

Sir Richard Johns' illustrious career has given him the privilege of a rare, if not singular, perspective of the RAF, its sister services and national defence matters, witnessing a steady decline in the combat power of the UK's armed forces as financial managment took precedence over identifying strategic priorities and maintaining the vital skill-sets of service personnel. His views are forensic and forthright, balanced and thought-provoking and this autobiography is essential reading for anyone interested in the development of Allied air power over the last 50 years and its contribution to operations in the Middle East and the Balkans
