NAVAL WAR IN THE MEDITERRANEAN 1940-1943. A superbly researched study filled with combat drama and strategic issues and examines the devastating losses inflicted by the German forces.
At first it was the British Navy pitted against the Italian Navy which fought back bravely but with few hopes. Then German air fleets, paratroopers and U-boats arrived in the theater to send the British reeling with devastating losses. Then the AMERICAN FLEET and airpower soon arrived to equalize the equation.
More than an operational history, this book explains why all the various warship classes were built and how they were employed. The role of the Italian Air Force at sea is analyzed. The inability of the Italians to complete the construction of their aircraft carrier, Aquila, and the planes it would need is also studied. The success of the German planes and ships in the Mediterranean are described.
Filled with combat drama and strategic issues. 352 pages. 60 superb photographs and maps.
