At the outbreak of the Second World War, Shropshire had just two operational airfields - Shawbury and Tern Hill. Eight more major airfields were to follow. For many trainee pilots, a major hazard was not enemy aircraft but the height of Shropshire's famous hill, The Wrekin. Eventually a large beacon was built at the summit, which still warns aircrews today. This action packed book describes the history of each airfield, often using first hand accounts. It also highlights some of the major operations carried out from them and shows the overall effect of the war on the daily lives of local people. Illustrated throughout.
