DescriptionNot long ago an enthusiastic foreign writer described the building up of Britain's air power during the war years as "a miracle." The remark was well meant but, to the Britisher, it misses the point. The most interesting thing about the development of British air power is that it was not a miracle. The story of aircraft production in this country during the last few years is a story of Britain at its best and the British genius at its highest and most characteristic.
