RAF in Combat books
Welcome to RAF-in-Combat.com, the site dedicated to RAF and Commonwealth air forces during WW2. From 1940 onwards the RAF became the world’s first International Air Force with an increasing number of volunteers coming from the Dominions, the Colonies and from occupied European countries and neutral countries who wanted to fight against tyranny. During WW2, the RAF played a major role in the air war over most of the continents and seas.

Many of its aircraft were manned by mixed crews coming from all around the world. In June 1944, nearly 490 Squadrons were active under RAF command with the RAAF, RCAF, RIAF, RNZAF and SAAF providing for 100 of them. The other nationalities, Belgian, Czechoslovakian, Dutch, French, Greek, Norwegian, Polish and Yugoslavian, formed another fifty.
