Wellingborough, 1st ed., 1984. 248 pp., frontis., map + other plans + numerous photo-ills. D.j., 24 x 16cm. Nr.FINE. Focussing on the military airfields of Greater London, this particular Action Stations covers fighter territory. Biggin Hill, Henley and Hornchurch are three names which stand out most readily although modern air travellers will be equally interested in the histories of Gatwick, Heathrow and Luton. Other famous names to appear include Booker and Brooklands, Croydon, Detling and Eastchurch, Hatfield and Hendon, Kenley, Northolt and West Malling, in addition to air defence headquarters such as High Wycombe and Uxbridge. Covering in depth both the Battle of Britain and the defence of London against the Blitz, this volume also covers later offensive cross-Channel operations.
