During the Cold War, Great Britain was often referred to as "America's Largest Aircraft Carrier." This relationship between the U.S. and Great Britain weathered not only the Cold War (and two World Wars prior), it also continues to face up to such current challenges as those posed by the Balkans. Rare photographs and a comprehensive history trace United States Air Force presence on Great Britain from 1948 to the present. Rare color and black-and-white photographs offer views of the facilities and the array of aircraft the USAF and RAF have jointly operated from the British Isles in the intervening years. The text examines how the alliance between the two nations has evolved, and how their strategies have been tailored to meet a changing cast of potential enemies.
