Superb: The Definitive Volume on RAF Elint.
on 25 June 2016
If you have any interest in RAF Elint this is a well-researched, superb, informative book. I served in the RAF at the end of the cold war period, and for the years of the 2 Gulf wars, Balkan conflict and Afghanistan. I was well aware of the existence of the Nimrod R1 aircraft of 51 Sqn, and was fascinated and tantalised by their clandestine role. This was in fact my main reason for buying this book.
This book, amongst its many other chapters in the RAF Elint story, sheds some light of the activities of 51 Sqn, its aircraft, and their value (and that of their predecessors) to our military operations and our national security in the Cold War and beyond.
The book is bang up to date with a short section on 51 Sqn's new Air Seeker aircraft which have now replaced the venerable Nimrods, and will ensure that our Elint capabilities remain at the forefront. They truly serve who also watch and listen!
Very highly recommended indeed, with lots of pictures as well as a clear text.
