The book begins by providing an excellent background to the Battle of Britain airfields in Britain, describing everything from the range of people working on a typical airfield, including station commanders, pilots, ground crew, and civilians, to descriptions of operations and plans of the buildings on an airfield. There is also airfield-by-airfield coverage of the Battle of Britain, with the layout of each airfield shown alongside its role in the overall battle. This information is complemented by over 150 contemporary photographs, maps, and airfield plans. Written by an accomplished military aviation author, this new study is the fruit of many years of research, and will be essential reading for all historians and keen aviation enthusiasts.
