The book starts with a general view of the history of the Cold war and then the general effect on the airfields buildings, the different airfields are put in chapters grouped together in alphabetical order in RAF Tactical Fighter then Bomber stations, then RAF Strategic Fighter then Bomber stations with a chapter on USAF airfields and finally on Maritime Reconnaisance aifields.
Each airfield entry has a history of the airfield and units that were based throughout its time, some of the airfields also have plans of the airfields included, the pictures illustrating the airfield entries are very good too showing aircraft that were based at the airfields. The information is very good, well written and is an easy read and anybody with an interest in the Cold War or in aircraft and airfields will value this book.
The only negative is a lack of Index as some airfields are in a number of different chapters and you have to go through the chapters to find there other entries.

I ordered this book as it was on my husband's wish list. It came extremely well packed and quickly. He opened it at Christmas - well chuffed. The content and illustrations are extremely informative as with all former Midland Counties Books who are know part of the Ian Allan Group.

I thought this book would describe how these airfields functioned during the cold war and what they were used for and what types flew from the fields. Unfortunately If you have already purchased books of a similar vein "Action Stations" etc, then there is nothing new here.

UK airfields of the cold war 19 Dec 2012
By Roland Peacock - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I was stationed in the UK for many tears while in the USAF. I am familiar with many of the airfields covered. However, I found several errors in the summaries of many of the RAF installations regarding types of aircraft and missions. I also found that there were numerous grammatical errors.
