eBooks about the RAF and Commonwealth air forces during WWII

I have found some free eBooks on the operations by commonwealth air forces during WWII especially from Australia. I hope that some of you can add some more books to the list. I prefer a normal book for reading but the possibility to use key-words or names when seeking information in eBooks saves a lot of time.

New Zealand
The official histories can be found on:

  • Royal New Zealand Air Force by J.M.S. Ross
  • New Zealanders with the Royal Air Force (Vol. I to III) by H.L. Thompson
