The Luftwaffe was very near to defeating RAF Fighter Command in 1940. Then they switched from bombing the fighter airfields to attacking cities, particulaly London. This was known as the Blitz. The main German force was then needed to support Hitlers' attack on Russia in the summer of 1941. The development of long range heavy bombers, most particularly the Avro Lancaster, supported by the de Haviland Mosquito in the Pathfinder role, enabled the RAF to take the fight to the German centres of Population & Industrial strength. With the aid of the USAAF, bombing in daylight, the British bombed at night, Germany sufferd 'round the clock' bombing. By the time of D Day, June 1944, the Allied forces had air superority allowing defence of ground forces by use of ground attack aircraft.

I hope you meant the RAF. There is no RIF. The Royal Air Force exists today. During World War 2 they were known as the RAAF, Royal Army Air Force.AnswerThe original answer is incorrect, as there has never been a 'Royal Army Air Force'. The letters, 'RAAF', represents the Royal Australian Air Force!The Royal Air Force was formed in 1918, by amalgamating the Royal Flying Corps (essentially part of the British Army), and the Royal Naval Air Service (part of the Royal Navy). This is one of the reasons that the RAF rank insignia is based on that of the Royal Navy. The Royal Navy still retains an independent air wing, called the Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS). And, yes, the RAF does exist today.

It was one of the countries, who fought against Germany during the WW1 and WW2. As the result of the Revolution of 1917, Russia capitulated during the WW1. But in 1945 in course of the WW2, it defeated Germany and captured half part of it. This part became the GDR afterwards.

The Persians did not defeat the Spartans. If you are talking about the delaying action at Thermopylae, a small contingent of Spartans was part of the force which blocked the pass to the Persian invasion army.
