Excellent! has put straight many previous misconceptions,
By A Customer
This review is from: Secret Underground Cities: an Account of Some of Britain's Subterranean Defence, Factory and Storage Sites in the Second World War (Paperback)A comprehensive history of Britain's underground military / industrial infrastructure of WW2, with the mass of detailed historical fact pierced by the occassional shaft of dry humour. Very readable. This book put straight many of my previous misconceptions about the infamous 'Corsham Complex' and revealed new sites in the Midlands and Wales about which I was previously unaware.
A little more on the underground RAF bomb-depots would perhaps have been welcome, along with details of the 'sinister' mustard gas factory at Rhydymwn, which, tantalyzingly, gets just a passing mention.
Overall though, a gem squeezed into 270 pages.
