DAWN OF CARRIER STRIKE And World of Lieutenant W P Lucy DSO RN


Hobbs has produced a first class reference. Following on from his equally good “Royal Navy’s Air Service in the Great War”, it picks up from where the founding fathers of the RAF convinced the politicians that they could win all future wars through strategic bombing and therefore there was no need for tactical air support for either the RN or the Army. Historically accurate drawing on original documents. This is compelling reading. He weaves the story of Lt Bill Lucy, throughout the book which helps the reader to get a good feel for what It was like flying with the Fleet Air Arm in the inter-war years and up to the Norwegian campaign.
