This review is from: Cold War: Building for Nuclear Confrontation 1946-89 (None) (Paperback)
This book is outstanding for anyone interested in the physical elements of Britains part in the Cold War. If it's the bunkers, storage depots, airfields and the defence of Britain you're after, then this book is essential. The politics of the conflict are covered, but the focus is on the concrete structures that did, and still dominate much of Britains landscape, plus a look at what was hidden under alot of peoples feet. The chapter on the USAF bases in Britain is worth the cost of the book alone in my view, as are the drawings, pictures and technical descriptions of nuclear bunkers, ROC buildings and WW2 airfields, that had to be converted to house the mighty V-Force and missile and radar systems.
Again, i can't recommend this book enough. Outstanding.
