La base "Primo de Rivera" no es un conjunto de edificios emblematicos, ni poseen una riqueza arquitectonica especial, ni estan catalogados dentro de aquellos que consiguieron que Alcala de Henares fuese declarada "Patrimonio de la Humanidad," sin embargo son historia de la ciudad y como tal, respetable y digna de ser conocida. Entre sus trece capitulos y dos apendices el lector descubrira los avatares de este establecimiento, su transformacion y mejora, su ruina y reconstruccion, los organismos que en el se establecieron, las unidades militares que lo utilizaron y las actividades que en el se desarrollaban. Este esfuerzo de sintesis, este pedazo de nuestra historia merecen la oportunidad de ser conocido y disfrutarlo. Rafael Fernandez, paracaidista ejemplar y escritor preocupado por la historia, nos pide con este libro, que no la olvidemos, que aprendamos de ella y que fortalezca nuestro carino por esta ciudad ejemplar que es Alcala de Henares.
