9780117724693: Ploughshares into Swords

This text looks at the less glamorous war efforts such as constructing Nissan huts, airfields and sewage disposal schemes in Middle Wallop, conducting bomb trials in Orfordness, devising mud hut officers' messes in Nigeria and carved out caves in Massawa. This is a facsimile edition of a declassified Royal Air Force publication entitled "Works". It is an engineer's history of the work of the Air Ministry Directorate-General from 1935 to 1945, and a technical paper on ten years of constructional work.
