Item description for Hornchurch Scramble by Richard C. Smith...

When the German raids on London and the South-East arrived from across the Channel in 1915, Sutton's Farm was established as one of the first Home Defence airfields to counter this threat. In the 1930s, now known as RAF Hornchurch, the airfield and personnel were in the forefront of many new aviation technology firsts. But it was in both the Dunkirk evacuation and the Battle of Britain that Hornchurch achieved its most lasting fame, with its squadrons taking on, and beating, the German fighter escorts to its lethal bombers. After seven years of research, interviewing commanders, pilots and ground crews, Richard Smith has produced their definitive history with many first-hand accounts.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hornchurch Scramble?

factual account but not very engaging  Mar 23, 2001
Using interviews and war diaries, this tells the story of RAF Hornchurch from its establishment in 1915 to the Autumn of 1940. I was disappointed because, while the facts are here, most of the drama is not. Some of the anecdotes are interesting, but much of the book is a rather tedious string of "four planes went out, three came back" passages. These manage to give a sense of the pace of operations, but the effect is still flat. I thought the part on WWI better than WWII (although I'm more interested in the later). Pictures were fair.
