Defending Bedfordshire: The Military Landscape from Prehistory to the Present


Bedfordshire has always been strategically important. From Iron Age hillforts to medieval sieges and battles it has seen significant military action. In WWI the county contributed to the birth of the RAF. In WWII its bases despatched RAF and USAAF bombers over Germany, but the major activity was the secret war associated with the Bedford Triangle.
