Airfields and Airmen of the Somme follows the same highly successful format of the best selling Airfields and Airmen of Ypres. Mike O'Connor takes the reader back to the sites of the Royal Flying Corps' airfields. His descriptions of the pilots of both sides and their action makes excellent reading. These cover the best known, such as von Richthofen (The Red Baron) and unsung heroes. A clear picture of the dangers involved and courage displayed emerges.

Evocative and entertaining, the book contains many surprises and if you are wondering why a replica aeroplane built for the film 'Those Magnificent Men and their Flying Machines' appears among early pages you'll just have to buy a copy and find out for yourself!

Windsock International

The blend of historical detail and practical directions make the book both enjoyable reading, and an encouragement to do additional research about the sites. It is by no means a comprehensive study of each location, but an admirable guide that will easily fit into you kitbag on your next trip to France!

Aerodrome Magazine

The book gives a good picture of the raw but also ‘romantic’ lives of the pilots at that time. There are also variants of this book for the area around Ypres, Arras and Cambrai.
