The Royal Navy In Eastern Waters - Linchpin of Victory 1935-1942

Be the first to review this product

The Royal Navy in Eastern Waters tells the compelling story of how the Royal Navy secured the strategic space from Egypt in the west to Australasia in the East through the first half of World War II.

It explains why this contribution, made while the Soviet Union’s fate remained in the balance and before American economic power took effect, was so critical. Without it the war would certainly have lasted longer and decisive victory might have proved impossible. 

After the protection of the Atlantic lifeline, this was surely the Royal Navy’s finest achievement, a linchpin of victory.


'Superbly researched and elegantly written, this book adds a hugely important dimension to our understanding of the war in the East. This new account ought to startle the many comfortable ideas which have been dozing too long in their arm-chairs'  N A M Rodger, author of A Naval History of Britain..
