From the author of the highly successful book, Echoes of East Anglia, comes this new volume
containing even more fascinating pictures of wartime East Anglia. In Ghost Fields Martin
Bowman takes the reader on a visual tour of the surviving Second World War airfields, exploring
through photographs, and the stories of those who were there, these long-abandoned bases.
Alongside rare images of wall art (much of which has now been lost forever but for the author’s
work in capturing it on camera), are aerial photographs of the airfields themselves, and on the
ground the ivy-clad ruins of all that remains.
Martin Bowman is among the best-known aircraft photographers in the country. The photographs
in this new book will fascinate many thousands who visit the area each year in search of this aspect
of our military heritage. This book honours those who briefly made East Anglia their home and is
a fitting tribute to their comradeship and bravery.
