    Default Research Books

    I ran across these books when I was browsing Air Museum's last night.
    These books are supposed to be in the Palm Springs Air Museum's library.
    I found them using the search term "airfield." Their library has 6,300 hundred books related to aviation and American military history.

    To find the library link on their website you will have to click on the "Show More" link. The library link should show up then.
    To use the Search function for their books you will need to hit "Control F" and a search box will be displayed.

    NORFOLK AIRFIELDS IN THE SECOND WORLD WAR by Graham Smith
    A full account of the part played by Norfolk's airfields during the Second World War.
    The history of each airfield is described with the squadrons and aircraft based at them and the main operations flown.

    AIRFIELDS OF THE EIGHTH THEN AND NOW by Roger A Freeman.
    AIRFIELDS OF THE EIGHTH THEN AND NOW by Roger A Freeman.
    Pictures and text describe the Airfields in the UK used by the Eight During WW 2

    UK AIRFIELDS OF THE NINTH, THEN AND NOW by Roger A Freeman.
    UK AIRFIELDS OF THE NINTH, THEN AND NOW by Roger A Freeman.
    Charged primarily with the support of ground forces in the invasion of Normandy, the Ninth fielded a variety of aircraft - liaison, fighter, bomber and troop carrier - and operated from over 60 airfields in Britain.
    In this work, they are explored and photographed on the ground and from the air, ranging from the troop carrier bases of central and southern England, the bomber airfields in Essex and the New Forest, and the advanced landing grounds in Kent and Hampshire - temporary expedients to enable fighters to give close support to the battlefield.

    I didn't know if you had any of these books already ?
    I also thought that the Palm Springs Air Museum's library might be a local resource for some of your research.
    It seems to have some good research books available.

    You have to join the museum to check the books out of the library.
    You would need to call to find out what you can do if you are going to do research at the library and not check the books out.

    The wink is throwing me.
    Are you serious or are you asking me to knock it off because it is useless ?


    I also don't know how to just link to the e-book.
    I didn't want it showing like a video.

    No, Wheels. Booze's wink was a way of saying "Thank you" for finding it and making us aware of it. If you can link it and post the link here, we'd appreciate it. Thanks again as any help finding stuff like this makes our job easier. Making a map like this is way more work than any of us imagined.

    Ok Deacon, thanks.
    The only way I can come up with at the moment is to put the link in a code box to disable it.
    You'll have to copy and paste it into your browser.

    That's good to know Booze.
    I've been told my exuberance can be a bit much. (It didn't happen here.)
    It was what crossed my mind when I posted earlier.
    On the other hand, it might just be that I am reaching the age of "the change" and am getting sensitive.


    US Army Airforces Continental Airfields (ETO) D-Day to V-E Day.
    Code:
    http://www.scribd.com/doc/1528452/US-Air-Force-usaaf-european-airfields
    This has some more standard airfield blueprints and squadron assignments to airfields in the ETO.

    There doesn't seem to be any Luftwaffe documents like this but I am trying.
