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 selection of period photographs. Military aviation began in this region, and southwestern England remained important thereafter with training and Coastal Command bases during WWII; but its finest hour came with the launch of airborne operations on D Day, 1944. Post -war the area's importance dwindled, but for those marooned at sea, and for the transport squadrons of the RAF, the extant airfields of the region remain highly significant.
