The RAF in Maritime War

The first of a set of volumes on the history of air power in maritime warfare. The book covers this history from the creation of the RAF to September 1939. Many critics have observed that air cover for convoys was not an RAF priority during the early years of the Second World War; this history shows the attitude of the Air Staff to this eventual problem, and the relationship between the RAF., the Fleet Air Arm and Coastal Command in the period leading up to the outbreak of hostilities. Further volumes will cover the war years, but this volume deserves to be read because it sets the scene for later events.
