At the height of the Second World War, Lincolnshire had no fewer than 46 operational airfields, all but nine built since 1939.

The build up of the RAF air offensive after 1940 and the arrival of squadrons from America, Australia, Canada and Poland, meant that by early in 1945 in Lincolnshire alone, there were several thousand aircraft and 80,000 personnel.

In this book, each airfield is described and details of its wartime function given. Also highlighted are the many and varied aircraft that comprised the operational units. Numbered among them are the Lancaster, Manchester, Hampden, Wellington, Hurricane, Spitfire and Beaufighter. Fully illustrated.
