Taking a broadly chronological approach, this collection explores key events and issues of British naval aviation, from the Admiralty's first order for an airship in 1909 through to debates concerning replacement aircraft carriers in the early twenty-first century. In so doing, the volume offers fascinating insights into one of the most important aspects of defence policy and Britain's military history, which is sure to stimulate further scholarly debate.
