{detailed description}Written by various members of the Kent Aviation Historical Research Society: Roy Humphreys, Dave Collyer, Paul Grundy, Ray Munday, Len Pilkington, Robin Brooks, Philip MacDougall.
Biggin Hill, Manston, Hawkinge and West Mailing are just a few of those historic Battle of Britain airfields covered in this book. Written by members of the Kent Aviation Historical Research Society, it contains much new material which will be of interest both to aviation enthusiasts and those living in Kent.
As the title suggests, it is not an attempt at re-telling the Battle of Britain story for, unlike any previous publication, it concentrates entirely upon the airfields. An introductory chapter though, deals with the effects of the Battle upon the County of Kent whilst subsequent sections deal with each airfield in turn. Apart from those already mentioned, the book has sections on Gravesend, Rochester, Detling and Lympne whilst a further chapter deals with airfield defences.
Using personal accounts, official records and many rarely seen photographs, the book aims to be a useful contribution to the history of Kent.
