Publisher Description

When Winston Churchill delivered his famous ëIron Curtainí speech in 1946, he mentioned two words now engrained in Anglo-American terminology - ëspecial relationshipí. ??Nowhere is the ëspecial relationshipí more evident than in the scores of airfields used by the United States Army Air Forces during the Second World War. Today, just a handful remain in active service. Yet they continue to bind the United Kingdom and United States together.??US Air Force Bases in the UK examines the history and continuing use of modern-day British airfields by the US Air Force. It also chronicles the many others that survived the Second World War, but not the passage of time.??While most have been reclaimed by agriculture, one thing that still endures is the ëspecial relationshipí. This book retraces its concrete paths.
