By David Hobbs (Author)
In a few short years after 1914, the Royal Navy practically invented naval air warfare, not only producing the first effective aircraft carriers, but also pioneering most of the techniques and tactics that made naval air power a reality.
 
Following two previously well-received histories of British naval aviation, David Hobbs turns his attention to the operational and technical achievements of the Royal Naval Air Service, both at sea and ashore, from 1914 to 1918. Detailed explanations of operations, the technology that underpinned them and the people who carried them out bring into sharp focus a revolutionary period of development that changed naval warfare  forever.

Praise
  • Australian Naval Institute wrote a review. “This is a fine book, a ripping yarn and essential reading for anyone interested in air and sea power. As the RNAS and its gallant members have passed from living memory, this book is a worthy tribute to their memory.” (11/20)

DAVID HOBBS, a retired Fleet Air Arm pilot, is the acknowledged expert on British naval aviation and the author of more than twenty published works. Having served in Victorious, he is supremely qualified to write this book.
