An engrossing account of naval air power from the end of the Second World War through to the end of the Cold War.
About the Book
From Korea to the Falklands, Vietnam to Suez, the decades of the Cold War saw many occasions of ferociously hot military action.
Through in-depth research of these global conflicts, drawing information from military sources as well as interviews with participants allows John Winton to examine how aerial warfare has developed since the 1940s.
Air Power at Sea, 1945-89 continues where the first volume Air Power at Sea, 1939-45 ended and provides thorough insight into how the naval forces of the United States, Britain, the Soviet Union, and many other countries continued to utilise aerial warfare during the decades when the threat of nuclear warfare seemed ever present.
