Written by an accomplished military aviation author, this new study is the result of many years of research, and will be essential reading for all historians of the period and keen aviation enthusiasts. There is growing interest in the Cold War era in British history.

This book provides a new study of Cold War airfields for all who study airfield history and archaeology. Phillip Birtles gives readers airfield-by-airfield coverage of those in operation from the start of the Cold War during the Berlin Air Lift in the late 1940s to the end of the Cold War with the fall of the Berlin Wall at the end of the 1980s. The book covers both RAF/FAA and USAF airfields in Britain, and charts the changes that took place at these airfields in this period. Alongside descriptive text outlining each airfield, the units and aircraft operating from that airfield and its role in the Cold War are explained in great detail.

Descriptive text is complemented by contemporary photographs, maps, and airfield plans.

Published 2012, 160 pages, 150 photographs, hardcover, 8 1/4" x 10 1/2"
