The first in a three-volume series chronicling the location, history and fate of the many landing grounds, airfields and airports of Wales, this book focuses on the south. Starting at the English border at Chepstow and finishing in Llandovery, Ivor Jones details such diverse histories as the meadows, parks and golf courses that were used as landing grounds by the United States Army's liaison aircraft during the Second World War, the RAF stations in the Vale of Glamorgan and the long forgotten civil aerodromes of the 1930s that served to give flight to the average man.
