Through Adversity is a detailed account of the British and commonwealth air war during the Second World War. The book covers every aspect from the RAF foundations to the Far east. It is written in a very engrossing way by providing all the facts interweaved with personal accounts.

The chapters cover the following:

  • Antecedents
  • Air Superiority
  • Strike
  • The Air War at Sea

The book is full of extremely good and rare photos that were another highlight for me. I read this book over three nights as it pulled me in and was very informative. This book impressed me from the moment I flicked through the pages when I got it. I recommend this book to everyone with an interest in WWII and the Air War.

Thanks go to Casemate Publishing for providing this book to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it.
