The Royal Navy in Defence and in Attack. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Britain has been attacked or threatened with attack from seaward with greater ferocity and persistence than any other country in the world; persistence than any other country in the world; sequence of foreign invasions of this country from the earliest days and to indicate how the establishment and growth of British naval strength gradually controlled and then eliminated sea attack. The second part of the book shows how it was possible, owing to the same maritime superiority, to embark upon crushing strikes of overseas counter-invasions leading, in 1944, to the piercing of Hitler’s Atlantic Wall and to the liberation of Occupied Europe.”
