A worthwhile and informative read. LaSaine also provides a set of very useful reference notes describing his obviously extensive research. This book presents a discerning view into one of the early builders of air power.

John LaSaine’s excellent, eminently readable biography of Hugh ‘Stuffy’ Dowding, the air officer who built and led RAF Fighter Command to victory in the Battle of Britain, should be ‘must’ reading for anyone interested in the history of the Royal Air Force in the first half of the twentieth century and the nature of high command within any military organization, particularly one rapidly evolving through scientific and technological innovation.
