Trafalgar, Tsushima, Midway, and other epic blue-water fleet actions are not likely to have their counterparts in the early twenty first century. Since the end of the Cold War there has been increased interest instead in the way that navies directly influence events where sea, air and land interact. Yet, in the broad sweep of military history this is nothing new.
Topics treated in detail include:
The naval air war over Gallipoli
Japan's joint operations in China in 1895
Air defence of naval and amphibious forces in the Falklands
Australian naval pilots and air mobile helicopter operations in Vietnam
German Navy land campaigns of World War II
The US Navy in the capture of Okinawa
Submarine operations in the Arctic
Naval peacekeeping in Somalia
Maritime blockades in Post-War China
Amphibious operations in World War II
Australian carrier operations in Korea
and many others.
In Sea Power Ashore and in the Air leading historians look back over more than a hundred years, to show how navies have often made a critical difference to the fighting ashore and the contest for mastery in the air.
