A detailed illustrated history of England's acoustic defence system between the wars. The majority were on the South Coast around the Hythe and Romney Marsh areas, and were huge concrete domes (known as mirrors) that reflected distant sounds of enemy aeroplanes, and from this sound the distance could be calculated. They preceded radar and some remain today as rather brutal but beautiful structures.
