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 Selection of period photographs

Bomber airfields of WWII dominated Northern England, with the Vale of York at its operational centre, but the area was also home to much aircraft manufacture, and the western side of the region trained thousands of aircrew in relative safety. Today it is almost all gone.
