"Sinopsis" puede pertenecer a otra edición de este libro.
Presents an illustrated account of the part played by Warwickshire airfields during the Second World War, the planes and pilots who flew them and the local civilians who worked alongside them.Reseña del editor:
This book describes the history of each airfield and highlights the major operations carried out from them. It shows how war affected the daily lives of local Warwickshire people - food rationing; the horrors of enemy bombing, especially the devastating German raid on Coventry in November 1940; and the long, hard and unremitting work in the many aircraft and munitions factories producing Spitfires, Whitleys, Lancasters, Stirligns and Mosquitoes. Castle Bromwich was at the centre of the nation's vital Spitfire production and through the war years Frank Whittle and his team worked from their base near Rugby to develop the jet engine.
