With its vast text and more than 2000 photos, Canada's Air Force At War And Peace, is the grandest of all publications dealing with the Royal Canadian Air Force, its predecessors and successors. This 3-volume series is something that no air force veteran will want to miss.

Volume 3 is dedicated solely to the postwar RCAF and the largest of all general RCAF histories. Beginning with the post-1945 slowdown, you'll read how Canada disposed of 1000s of surplus aircraft, whether burned, buried, or sold to get-rich-quick entrepreneurs. Next? The panicky built-up to Korea and the Cold War. Here are all the details about Vampires, Mustangs, Sabres & CF-100s; North Stars & C-119s; Lancasters, Neptunes & Argus; Harvards & T-33s. One chapter deals with R&D projects, whether Arctic navigation, flight test, or weapons; one about the CF-105 will be an eye-opener for those taken in by the Arrow myth makers. Vol.3 has hundreds of fresh colour photos from the 1950s-60s. Dozens of reminiscences enliven this era. Vol.3 takes you beyond unification to the 1970s.

published 2001, 520 pages, 1500+ black & white and colour photographs, hardcover, large format (9" x 12") glossary, bibliography, index.

Says Air Pictorial: "Milberry has excelled in this volume by combining riveting personal experiences from air and ground crews with an unrivalled selection of illustrations... rarely does a book so handsomely exceed the most sanguine expectations as does this outstanding publication."

Writes Air Force Magazine: "This set is a collector's item even before it is completed."
