From the seaplane carriers of 1914 to the success of the Falklands Taskforce the record of the Royal Navy carriers and naval aircraft for innovation and operational achievement has been unequalled among world navies. It is a record which has been maintained against a background of often limited resources and a British role in the world which has changed dramatically since 1918.
British Carrier Aviation is the story of that record. The author's thematic approach does full justice to the complex interrelationship between strategy, technology and design in the evolution of this exceptional naval arm. He draws widely on official sources, and includes many previously unpublished drawings and photographs of the carriers and their aircraft, making British Carrier Aviation as much a book for the layman as for the naval expert, and of major interest to aircraft-as well as ship-enthusiasts.
Some creasing to dust jacket. Book is in an excellent condition otherwise with beautifully clean and bright pages. A stunning array of photographs, drawings, and statistical information throughout.
