From the cover: “Forty years later, After the Battle magazine has ploughed an entirely fresh furrow across this legendary field of human conflict to produce what has now come to be regarded as a memorial to The Few’.

This 816-page book contains over one thousand seven hundred pictures and over half a million words of text contributed by specialists, enthusiasts and historians. It does not attempt to re-tell the story of the battle once again. Instead it has been the Editor’s intention to bring a new aspect to the combat between July 10 — October 31, 1940 through the presentation of comparative ‘then and now’ photographs familiar to readers of After the Battle magazine.

Never before has such detailed coverage been given to the losses of either the Royal Air Force or the Luftwaffe. The graves of RAF aircrew that were killed have been listed, visited by the editorial team and photographed as a complete and lasting record of those that died. The pilots, their memorials, crashes and crash sites, and the aircraft that have survived are profusely illustrated. Twenty of the most famous fighter aerodromes from which they flew have been explored and are described as they were at the time and as they are today, with a particularly detailed account of one typical front line station.

With an extra 96 pages, the Mk II edition brings together all the additional research and information on the battle which has come to light since the book was originally published. Also included is a complete listing of ‘The Few’ — all those aircrew of Fighter Command who participated in the Battle — which is the culmination of more than twenty-five years’ work by John Holloway. Plus illustrated indexes of aircraft and personnel together with a pen portrait of Pilot Officer Keith Gillman — featured on the dustjacket.

No book has ever been published that chronicles the Battle of Britain in this way. Among its pages, men and events, aircraft and aerodromes that have already been consigned to the past are commemorated in the present.”

From the cover: “It is a sobering thought that, around the world, over 1,000 million passengers are boarding scheduled airline flights every year and the figure is constantly increasing. Added to this are millions of charter passengers as well as others on private or business flights and all of these have one thing in common — they will begin and end their flight at an airport. Those with an interest in aviation affairs will inevitably concentrate their attention on the aircraft themselves, perhaps the most exciting machines ever invented by man, but from the very earliest days aviators have always been dependant on support from the ground. Of course, their original demands were few, any reasonably flat area would do for taking-off and landing and a few gallons of fuel could be easily carried in cans. However, early aircraft were fragile and at the mercy of the elements and so some sort of weatherproof shelter soon became a necessity. As aircraft got larger and heavier, they needed longer take-off and landing runs and so aerodromes became larger, although still very small by modern standards.

Since the early years technical improvements in aircraft design have forced airport authorities to provide better facilities such as longer runways, larger terminals, radar, runway and approach lighting, and instrument landing systems.

This book attempts, through the medium of photographs, to show some of the history of our airports and how they have grown and developed over the years. While all the major airports have been covered in varying detail, an effort has been made to include a large cross section of the many smaller or less busy airfields which, nevertheless, play an important part in the communities they serve. As far as possible aerial photographs have been used as these best show the airfield layout and are useful for comparative purposes.”
