Product Description


Martin Bowman is among the best-known aircraft photographers in the country and Halsgrove have recently published his celebrated book of classic aircraft photographs, "Airs and Graces". In this new work, he has explored the many Second World War airfields in East Anglia, taking evocative photographs of all that remains, from empty, echoing control towers to the graffiti and wall-art left by the intrepid airmen, many of whom flew to their deaths, from this remote corner of England. These airfields continue to hold a fascination for many thousands who visit the area each year in search of this aspect of our military heritage.

As the subtitle states, it is a photo-essay of the wartime airfields of Norfolk and Suffolk. Martin Bowman is a respected aviation author and photographer specialising in United States Air Force units based in the United Kingdom during World War Two. This superb collection of colour photographs is supported with wonderfully evocative anecdotes of the time.
