Stornoway played an important and under-rated role both at sea and in the air in the winning of the Battle of the Atlantic and the Second World War.  In this lavishly illustrated booklet, containing many pictures not previously published, Mike Hughes describes the achievements and tragedies of those dramatic years, drawing on the personal memories of heroes like John Davenport DFC, who like hundreds of others found himself stationed in Lewis, at the most north-westerly edge of Europe.
