Product description

Listening In – 1st edition

RAF Electronic Intelligence Gathering Since 1945

Dave Forster & Chris Gibson

Hikoki Publications Ltd, Manchester, 2014: 1st edition.

Hardback; 220 x 300 mm; black boards with titles in gold on spine; 192 pages; illustrations within text; printed on good quality paper. Original unclipped dust jacket.

The book is in very good condition. The binding is sound. Minor wear to the dust jacket with dog ears on the inside flaps. Some marks on the front cover of the book.

As World War II closed, the Air Staff decided to preserve the UK's electronic intelligence (ELINT) expertise, resulting in the formation of the Radio Warfare Establishment and later the Central Signals Establishment. A tentative ELINT program was commissioned in 1946 using a small number of Lancaster and Mosquito aircraft specially modified for the task and as relations with the Soviet Union deteriorated, interest focused on the growing Soviet air defence system, with the 1948 Berlin crisis resulting in the first major ELINT program against the Soviet Union's air defences. A highly detailed work illustrated throughout with over 180 photographs and drawings, “Listening In” tells the full story of this secret world and its aircraft (both actual and proposed).
