See the descriptions from the dustwrapper flap and from the rear of the dustwrapper. For once the dustwrapper hype is justified, with details of the dates each squadron used each airfield and which aircraft they used (see specimen page below). You feel the information would have been almost impossible to collate without computers. The book is saved from being a simple work of reference by the second part of the book (pp 223-289), subtitled “The Human Dimension” – see the author’s description below.
Still in print at a substantial £35.00.
A heavier book than you might think – the publisher used heavyweight paper to better reproduce the many photos – so it would cost a good deal to send abroad.
