Peter Celis - "Runways to victory" ....a superbly produced 300-page hardback on special offer at the Aviation Bookshop this w/e (..a mere £5 !!)



not specifically a Thunderbolt book but plenty of P-47 images and a superb P-47 colour section..
"Runways to Victory" describes the life & times of a number of notable airfields in Belgium as used by the 9th U.S. Army Air Force and the British 2nd Tactical Air Force in 1944-'45. An in-depth insight into wartime operations at seven 'typical' fighter bases :

A-78 Florennes
A-84 Chievres
A-92 St. Trond
Y-10 Le Culot/East
Y-29 Asch
B-67 Ursel
B-90 Petit Brogel
All aspects of the Allied tactical fighter war in 1944-'45 at these airfields are explained in words and lavishly illustrated with rare photographs.

I phoned up to get my copy today and apparently it isnt on offer. Somebody must have put it on the £5 shelves by mistake.

Runways to Victory and the 86th Fighter/Bomber Group are both EXCELLENT books. I highly recommend both.
