After the outbreak of the Second World War in September 1939, the first-line strength of the Royal Air Force in Britain was about 2,000 aircraft. The RAF fighter pilots, however, distinguished themselves during the Battle of Britain in the early stages of the war against the numerically superior German Luftwaffe. By the time the war ended, the strength of the RAF was 963,000 personnel.
