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 photograph. The airfields of Southern England like Biggin Hill, Kenley and Hawkinge played host to the greatest part of the action of the Battle of Britain. Farnborough - birthplace of British aviation lies in Hampshire and many regional airfields played host to vital anti-submarine patrols during WW1.

Ken Delve left the RAF after a twenty-year flying career to become Editor of Flypast magazine and subsequently Editor-in-Chief with Key Publishing with responsibility for eight aviation magazines.  An established author, he also lectures on RAF history.
