New Teaching Module: Churchill and Airpower

We have added another new higher education teaching module to our collection. The teaching modules on the site are essays specially written by experts and designed to help lecturers structure teaching on these subjects. They include many useful links to resources outside the site and primary documents within the Archive.

Churchill and Airpower by Richard Overy, Professor of History at the University of Exeter.
This module explores Churchill's relationship with military aviation from the early days of the naval air force established when he was First Lord of the Admiralty in 1914, through his role as Minister of Munitions in 1917–18 and then Air Minister in 1919–20, and his eventual position in the Second World War as Prime Minister and Minister of Defence when he could play a full part in shaping Royal Air Force strategy and development.
