Excellent reference work of U.S. Army Air Forces airfields in the European Theatre of Operations (ETO).
Great listing by numerical identifier, alphabetical listing, and British airfields. B&W publication has good descriptions of base field construction and nice reference section of airfields, some previously secret.
“When the Allies invaded Normandy on D-Day, the 6th of June 1944, US Army Air Forces (USAAF) engineers were among those in the initial assault waves. Their mission was to rapidly construct forward operating airfields, known as Advanced Landing Grounds (ALGs), on the continent. As the Allied armies advanced across France and into Germany, several hundred airfields were built or rehabilitated for use by the allied air forces. For security reasons, the airstrips were referred to by a coded number instead of location.
The bulk of primary source material dealing with USAFF activities in Western Europe refers to the various airfields only by code number, thereby making it difficult or impossible to identify an airfield without a reference key. This guide is intended to bridge this difficulty.”
