    Default Airfields in Holland

    Can anyone point me in the right direction as to if there is a book similar to 'Runways to Victory' by P Celis that covers the 2nd TAF Airfields in Holland.
    I am specifically interested in 3 specific airfields:-
    B.79 - Woensdrecht
    B.85 - Schjindel
    B.106 - Twente
    What I am trying to establish is
    a) A brief history of the Airfield.
    b) Number of runways & type of surface.
    c) Accomodation available at the airfield.
    d) A map of the airfield

    Thanks in advance

    Default Dutch airfields

    Dear Andy,

    Early next year there will be a book published about all the Luftwaffe- and Allied airfields in Holland. Unfortunately it will be in Dutch. I can help you with a map of Woensdrecht (which had only a psp-runway from NE-SW. Please mail me at pe.v.loo(add)mindef.nl.
    There's als been an article about the construction of some of the Allied airfields in Holland in the magazine 'After the Battle' a several years ago.

    Best regards,
