Размер: 11.8 mb
Between the end of the Great War and the start of World War II in 1939, the Royal Navy's strategic focus shifted eastwards, to Japan, with its growing battlefleet as the new threat to the British Empire and to the Royal Navy's supremacy. From 1924 a strategic plan, War Memorandum (Eastern), was written and refined. The plan called for the Royal Navy to move eastwards to a defended base at Singapore, cut off Japan and force its battlefleet into a decisive fleet battle. The author examines the new tactics that were developed and the effects that developing such a strategy had on virtually all aspects of naval thinking during the period.
