{detailed description}It has often been said that during the Second World War, Britain tended to resemble a gigantic aircraft carrier. Of no county was this image more true than Suffolk.
The build up of the RAF air offensive after 1940, and the arrival of the huge USAAF Eighth Air Force in 1942, meant that by early 1945 in Suffolk alone, there were some thirteen hundred aircraft flying from thirty-two airfields. This book describes the history of these airfields - RAF or USAAF - and highlights the major wartime operations and the many and varied aircraft that comprised the operational squadrons. Numbered among them are the Blenheim, Wellington, Stirling, Lancaster, Liberator, Flying Fortress, Spitfire, Hurricane, Thunderbolt, Mustang and the Sunderland Flying Boat.
These, and the young airmen who flew them, made an immense contribution to the final defeat of the Third Reich, as Allied bombers and fighters flew increasingly larger raids across the North Sea and into the dangerous, smoke-filled skies of occupied Europe.
Graham Smith's action-packed book will appeal equally to aviation enthusiasts and to readers who recall the era when the villages of Suffolk and the skies above them never ceased to drone with the distant roar of departing and returning aircraft.{Author / Publisher / Date}by Graham Smith
