Bunker Books - more underground eye candy!

I am endlessly fascinated by stories, maps, charts and images of 'secret' underground spaces. I am also a sucker for large-format picture books. So I recently ordered another 'bunker book' for my overflowing office bookshelves.

This new book by Nick McCamley is a nice volume with some good details, good mix of historic and recent photographs of the different bunkers used by UK military and govt in the 2nd WW period (mainly converted underground stone quarries) and also some detailed orginal layout plans. The text is fairly readable and offers some insight into how the bunkers were acquired and operated. Given that its published by a small press, the production values are also good.
