The book includes a range of quotations that give the flavour of the time and the essence of the debates. No other book allows the reader to get a clear overview of the base, the plans, the campaign, the guns and the remaining heritage, all in one place.

Review:

'... a major and original contribution to what the author's call the "never-ending post-mortem" destined to continue not simply for want of an authoritative inquiry conducted at the time but more especially with ever-changing perspectives'.

A. J. Stockwell (Royal Holloway, University of London), The Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History
