Being totally unfamiliar with the DIG WW2 series, I was assuming Jean Hood's book to be a companion piece to the BBC series featuring descriptions of the digs shown in the various episodes.

Being totally unfamiliar with the DIG WW2 series, I was assuming Jean Hood's book to be a companion piece to the BBC series featuring descriptions of the digs shown in the various episodes. While Hood's book does cover some of that, it also offers up a lot of background war history which, unfortunately, tends to overwhelm the archeological material. Hood's book breaks down into four parts: 'In Peril on the Sea,' 'The Air War,' 'Holding the Fort' and 'Breaching the Walls.

Expected much more "digs" to be covered. The title is very misleading as the book is navel centric and I was looking for battlefields being dug up and history uncovered.

Hood's book breaks down into four parts: 'In Peril on the Sea,' 'The Air War,' 'Holding the Fort' and 'Breaching the Walls.' The first section covers the career and fates of HMS Transylvania/HMS Empire Heritage/U-155/U-2511 and U-534, flying boat ops from RAF Castle Archdale and ops at several other RAF airfields in northern Ireland along with background information on the convoy ststem, Coastal Command's air wars, armed merchant cruisers, etc. Vintage and contemporary b&w and color photographs are included. Part 2 gets more into the 'dig' aspect with coverage of several Spit recoveries and an 8th AF B-17 but here again there's a great deal of background material and so on.

In short, the subject would have been better served if tighter focus had been kept on the main raison d'etre, the uncovering of WW II rellcs. Digs, especially aircraft digs, have always fascinated me but, unfortuuantely, DIG WW2 just scratched the surface. Your call, folks.
