THE ROYAL NAVY IN EASTERN WATERS: Linchpin of Victory 1935-1942
Examines how the Royal Navy secured the strategic waters from Egypt in the west to Australasia in the East through the first half of WWII. Explains why this contribution, made while Russia's fate remained in the balance and before American economic power took effect, was so critical.
Discusses grand strategy, intelligence, accounts of specific operations, and technical assessment of ships and weapons. It challenges established perceptions of Royal Navy capability, as the Royal Navy of 1939 was stronger than usually suggested. Encompasses the key part played by the American relationship in Britain's Eastern naval strategy.
