A Fighter Command Station At War

A Photographic Record Of RAF Westhampnett From The Battle Of Britain To D-Day And Beyond

This book tells the story of a fighter command base in Sussex  initially known as RAF Woodcote by the ground crew but later RAF Westhampnett. The author details how It served the country - without fail - for such a long period of time. From the Battle of Britain through to Arnhem. It is a touching book that includes many first hand accounts by pilots and ground crew and a large number of black and white images of those squadrons and ground crew associated with the airfield. Well researched and well worth a read.
