BLUE DIAMONDS The Exploits of 14 Squadron RAF 1945-2015

BLUE DIAMONDS
The Exploits of 14 Squadron RAF 1945-2015 
A sequel to his History of the RAF's 14 Squadron in the world wars, Michael Napier's second volume traces the unit's action and service to date, including on the front line in divided Cold War Germany, the 1991 Gulf War, patrolling over Iraq from 1991-2009, the Kosovo conflict in 2000, and the war in Afghanistan.
In the decades since the Second World War the RAF's 14 Squadron has operated many aircraft types (Mosquitoes, Vampires, Venoms, Hunters, Canberras, Phantoms, Jaguars and Tornados) in a fascinating variety of roles. For much of this time, the Squadron was based in Germany in the front line of the Cold War, but it also participated in the Gulf War in 1991, in operations over Iraq from 1991-2009, in the Kosovo conflict in 2000, and latterly during the war in Afghanistan, firstly with the Tornado GR4 and then with the Shadow R1. Today the Squadron operates in great secrecy in an Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance role. Having had access to log-books, contemporary diaries, maps and photographs, as well as oral and written accounts from a large number of ex-Squadron members, the author has been able to produce as complete an account as possible of the operational history of 14 Squadron in the second half of the twentieth century and the opening years of the twenty-first.
