Between 1939-45 the RAF was in the forefront of the exercise of air power; it prevented an invasion of Britain; it supported British Armies in North Africa, Italy, NW Europe and the Far East; it fought continuously over the seas around Britain, over the North Atlantic and the Mediterranean and over the Indian Ocean; and it played a major role (together with the US Army Air Force) in the strategic bombing offensive against Germany. Of the major air forces of the Second World War, the German, Italian, Japanese and Russian were organized and equipped primarily to support their respective armies on the ground; only the RAF and US Army Air Force had well-developed plans for the independent use of air power in maritime and strategic bombing offensive roles.
