FLEET AIR ARM HANDBOOK

David Wragge

Be the first to review this product

Starting with a brief history, the book progresses with a full war diary of all the major operations in a gripping narrative account. We see the different functions of the Fleet Air Arm - to protect the essential supplies brought by merchant ships, and their close support of sea and ground forces, both from carriers at sea and bases ashore. 

 

Each squadron, wing and carrier air group is listed along with the operations and locations. This is a well researched tribute to an important force and is essential reading for anyone interested in naval aviation during the Second World War - and perhaps equally essential for anyone developing the Royal navy's new carrier air operations today.

 

"As good a single volume on the subject as your reviewer has located" - Aircraft Illustrated
