Opis produktu:

A survey of Britain's military airfields from the early 20th century to the end of the Second World War. The topics described range from airfield development to the various buildings and installations which became part of the airfield, satellite landing grounds and shadow factories.

In 254 pages the author goes into very precise detail, mixed with useful eye-witness testimony, about the policy, construction, operation and legacy of Britain's military airfields.

There are plenty of well-researched books around that give gazetteer-type operational information about each airfield county by county, unit by unit, and some excellent classic source works such as those by Roger Freeman, Michael Bowyer and Ken Delve especially (all recommended!) - but this gives a really thorough view of the national rationale and physical context of wartime airfields. I've been doing my own research for a degree course and have found this book to be one of the best single-source tomes out there. Highly recommended.
