When Winston Churchill delivered his famous ‘Iron Curtain’ speech in 1946, he mentioned two words now engrained in Anglo-American terminology - ‘special relationship’.

Nowhere is the ‘special relationship’ more evident than in the scores of airfields used by the United States Army Air Forces during the Second World War. Today, just a handful remain in active service. Yet they continue to bind the United Kingdom and United States together.

US Air Force Bases in the UK examines the history and continuing use of modern-day British airfields by the US Air Force. It also chronicles the many others that survived the Second World War, but not the passage of time.

While most have been reclaimed by agriculture, one thing that still endures is the ‘special relationship’. This book retraces its concrete paths.

Review:

‘Fascinating and beautifully illustrated... A timely and important book.’ (Battle of Britain historian James Holland)
