Synopsis: During the Second World War the seven operational airfields spread across Herefordshire and Worcestershire played a major role in securing victory. Two of them, Pershore and Honeybourne, trained aircrews for Bomber Command and both sent planes and crews to join Sir Arthur Harris' spectacular 1,000 bomber raids over Germany. One of the most crucial airfields was Defford. Here, scientists and technicians were engaged in top secret work to develop the new invention of RADAR. Their success was to affect the whole course of the war. This action-packed book describes the history of the different airfields, highlights some of the major operations carried out from them, and shows the overall effect of the war on the daily lives of the local people. Robin Brooks' account will bring back vivid memories for some and will inform and inspire many more. He is the author of several other volumes in this series including Kent, Sussex, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, the Thames Valley and Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire.
