Description

This volume is the second in a series on active Air Force bases and a continuation of a recent line of works prepared for the Center for Air Force History under the Reference Series. These reference books contain specific information about a number of topics of interest to the United States Air Force and other arms of the Department of Defense. They are designed to present fundamental data about such diverse subjects as Air Force aircraft, combat action, unit lineage and honors, campaign medals and streamers, and air bases, for those who will write more extensive narrative accounts about Air Force activities and operations. Volume II in the Air Force Bases series provides important background information about overseas installations that are less well known than domestic stations. The active installations included in this volume, to be sure, represent only a fraction of the overseas bases, fields, and stations operated by the United States Air Force and its predecessor organizations since the beginning of World War II. Nevertheless, many of the most significant and enduring air bases appear in these pages, some of which are essential to America's defense posture. This work represents a starting point for military students and staff officers involved in defense research or planning, and for scholars interested in serious research of air bases and the Air Force organizations that operated from them.show more
