I have to admit I have more than a passing interest in the book's subject matter; I visited the vast underground installations in Wiltshire when I was in the military. The site of an underground railway station was quite impressive. The author gives us the history of the tunnels and some maps, although they are not particularly detailed. More recent photos would have been interesting. Worth buying, especialy if you live in the area and wondered what on earth (or under it) was going on under the rolling hills outside Bath.

Secret Underground Cities: an Account of Some of Britain's Subterranean Defence, Factory and Storage Sites in the Second World War
Excellent book, full of interesting information about these WW2 ammo stores. Plenty of diagrams and photos, but could have done with some more detailed maps of where the sites are and a chapter on what the sites are like today. Well worth buying, though.

Fascinating, although like all such books I suspect that there are a few minor factual errors. Difficult to check, of course, and that is the problem with all such works on what is basically industrial history and archaeology. But he has made a good effort to be as accurate as possible, and I was fascinated to see things like a few bumps and mounds in a field in Wiltshire which corresponded exactly to an item in the book.

The problem is that it has left me really wanting to see certain underground chambers which are now very much out of bounds. So it has left me feeling somewhat frustrated, as all such books do. But that is a sign of a good book, if it leaves you gasping for more....

Recommended, if you are into that sort of thing.
