woodweddingsigns.com O'Connor's major works have been on the social and economic impact of the phosphate industry in England and other countries, but he has made frequent forays into operations of the SOE into Europe from airfields in Bedford. In this book, he traces the development of the primary airfield and supporting annexes tasked with the mission to transport the high priority passengers into and out of denied enemy territory.
He shows how the land for the field was obtained and how the field was designed and built in such way as to make it appear as if it was a little used, out-of-the-way outpost. From here, and Special Duties Squadrons flew nightly missions into Europe ranging from Northern France, The Netherlands, and Belgium to as far away as Poland and Czechoslovakia during the few days on either side of the full moon. Churchill's Most Secret Airfield is divided into seven chapters with a comprehensive section on abbreviations right at the outset where it belongs , the early history of the airfield, the squadrons, ground crew and aircrews, secret operations, everyday life at the base, and disposition after the war.
