Description Description
This series of books provides a fresh user-friendly look at the military airfields of the British Isles. The series is split geographically, each book including a number of counties on a regional basis. Entries cover every military airfield within the counties, from WW1 to the present day and comprise: Brief history of the airfield, construction and use including decoy sites; Comprehensive list of flying units with dates and aircraft types; List of HQ units based at the airfield; Details of memorials; Maps and plans of almost every airfield; Location details; and a selection of period photographs. The first volume is dominated by the airfields built for the US 8th Army Air Force during WW2. These concrete airstrips played a vital part in the war effort. Today, most of the airfields lie abandoned, but some, like Marham, survive having been important Cold War bases.
