Aviation in Canada: Evolution of an Air Force is the third in the Aviation in Canada series. It is the story of the Canadian Air Force and the Royal Canadian Air Force between the wars, and on the home front 1939-45. ACEAF is the first general book dedicated specifically to these important decades. The story begins with a handful of capable, dedicated WWI veterans determined to establish a peacetime air force. Equipped with war surplus aircraft, they negotiate for funding and set to work. Besides training aircrew and tradesmen, the CAF soon has its assignments, but most are done for civil government bureaus — photography, forestry, fisheries, treaty and customs patrols, etc. In 1924 the CAF evolves into the Royal Canadian Air Force.
