In the latest addition to the History of Military Aviation series, Peter Dye describes how the development of the air weapon on the Western Front during World War I required a radical and unprecedented change in the way that national resources were employed to exploit a technological opportunity. World War I has long been recognized as an industrial war that consumed vast amounts of materiel and where logistical superiority gave the Allies an overwhelming advantage. The Bridge to Air Power is the first study that demonstrates how logistical competence provided a war-winning advantage for the Royal Flying Corps, the precursor to the Royal Air Force. In particular, it highlights how the Corps’ logistical organization was able to maintain high levels of resilience and agility while sustaining military outputs under widely different operational conditions.

PETER DYE is a graduate of Imperial College London and Birmingham University. He served in the Royal Air Force for over 35 years and was awarded the Order of the British Empire for service during the first Gulf War. He retired as an air vice-marshal and was appointed director general of the Royal Air Force Museum in 2008.
