About the Author

Greg Baughen was educated at Sussex University where he obtained a degree in Mathematics. In a varied teaching career, he has taught Maths and English as a Foreign Language, to children and adults, in Britain and abroad. His interest in military aviation was sparked at a very early age by curiosity over the defeat of British and French air forces in the Battle of France in 1940. For forty years, he has delved though public archives in Britain and France seeking explanations. The quest has taken him back to the origins of air power in both countries and forwards to what might have been in the Cold War. In between marking homework and bringing up a family, he set to work writing a definitive history of air power in both countries. Retirement has provided the time to turn these drafts into polished books. Seven drafts exist in all. Six of these take the history of British air power from the turn of the 20th century up to 1970 and a seventh covers the history of the French Air Force up to 1940. Blueprint for Victory and The Rise of the Bomber were the first two in the series on British air power. The RAF in the Battle of France and Battle of Britain is the third and takes the story up to 1940. The huge volume of new information uncovered over the years has also provided the basis for a series of spin-offs. The first of these will be a reappraisal of the career of the Fairey Battle. Greg Baughen's career has now turned full circle as he makes use of the teaching skills acquired over the years to turn some of the themes developed in these books into an increasingly sought after series of talks and lectures.

Reviews

"An interesting account of a period in the war that is well known, but which tackles aspects of it which are far less well known... intriguing... an interesting take on the whole topic."
