A history of Greenham Common 1941-1992
Jonathan Sayers is a graduate in International Relations and holds a Masters degree in International Security Studies, who lives in Thatcham, Berkshire. He has been deeply committed to the preservation of the history of the base at Greenham Common since 2001 when he launched a very successful website on the history of the base. This commitment grew in 2006 when he published the first book to tell the full history on RAF Greenham Common, entitles “In Defense of Freedom: A History of RAF Greenham Common”.

He brings a very extensive knowledge of the base and have given talks on it to many local groups including the Newbury Society, Newbury Rotary, and the Thatcham Historical Society. He has also been interviewed by BBC TV, BBC Radio Berkshire and worked on a number of documentaries on the base with media production companies.
