As an underground post observer from 1971 to 1987 I am delighted with this excellent book. It is a quality production and I can only imagine the work that has gone into compiling this worthy tribute to the Royal Observer Corps. In true ROC tradition I set about trying to find errors but, if there are any, they have eluded me. I thoroughly recommend this book and its insight into truly dangerous times that few knew anything about.

Although not a former observer myself, I am very familiar with the ROC underground posts having conducted a photographic survey of all 1563 of them between 1997 - 2004. For anyone with an interest in the ROC post-WW2 this book is an absolute must. Well researched, crammed with photographs most of which are in colour. As well as a detailed history of the ROCs nuclear role there are descriptions with photographs of all the post instruments and a chapter on restored posts which have sprung up all over the country in recent years. As a post owner myself I find myself referring to this book on an almost daily basis. If the print quality wasn't so good it would be worn out already! Put a copy in your basket now, you won't be disappointed.

Sometimes books on specialist areas can be a bit dull with long narratives to read, slavishly going through detail in chronological order, and occasional black and white photos. But I was pleasantly surprised that this book is beautifully printed with lots of colour photos, and the text is concise, well written and structured. It's a book you can read from cover to cover, or just dip into as interest takes you. Highly recommended whether you're already knowledgeable on the subject or not.

Great book, well worth the money.
Read this almost entirely in one evening. Sometimes books such as this can be fairly dull, not this one. Packed with fact after fact, glorious picture after glorious picture. Well written, by an author who clearly knows the subject, in a very readable style, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
Buy this book, if you are like me, having an interest in Cold War structures (either above, or below ground!!), you will not be disappointed in any way.
