Antony Bird, Strettington, Chichester, 1981, ISBN:0917319025 
WILLMOTT, H.P. Sea Warfare : Weapons, Tactics and Strategy. With an Epilogue by Admiral of the Fleet the Lord Hill-Norton. (Strettington, Chichester):Antony Bird, (1981). First Edition. Pp (10),1-165,(1) + [8] pp of plates. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Myron Smith, The United States Navy and Coast Guard, 1946-1983 : A Bibliography 3059. This book is survey about sea power from the time of the Romans to NATO and the Soviet fleets of the 1980s. "This book is about sea power the weapons, ships, tactics and strategies that nations have used to acquire and hold it. in the ultimate test, sea warfare. The book covers the whole spectrum of naval history from the Romans to the NATO and Soviet fleets of today. Dealing in turn with thesuccessive arbiters of naval tactics the gun, the submarine, and aircraf t Ned Willmott unravels the sinews of sea power so that Trafalgar, Jutland. Pearl Harbour and the Battle of the Atlantic are placed in sharp perspective. He then looks closely at the balance of power between the modern NATOand Soviet navies. Admiral of the Fleet the Lord Hill-Norton takes this an alysis one stage further in his Epilogue in which he postulates a possible two-stage Battle of the Atlantic Bridge, fought with existing weapons, where the lessons to be learnt from 191418 and 1940-44 will be very much in the minds of the Admirals of today. This is a timely, provocative and in manyways controversial book. Ned Willmott shows in detail how the Soviets have developed the immense striking power of their modern navy. He poses the qu estion, however, whether the Soviet navy, for all its might, like the Imperial German Navy before it, has really thought through the meaning of sea power. But what-ever the case the West is more than ever dependent on sea-borne lines of communication for vital strategic raw materials, yet at the same time the free world's ability to defend these lines has never been weaker. Today's navies no longer think in terms of commanding the sea; at best they think in terms of denying an enemy access to certain parts of it for certain periods of time. It is how this situation has come about that is the material of this book.." - from the dust jacket. Chapters : I. Sea Power: toDeter and Defend; II. The Length of an Arm: The Gun; III.

187 WINTON, John Victoria Cross at Sea. First Edition in dustjacket
Michael Joseph, London , 1978, ISBN:0718117018 
WINTON, John. The Victoria Cross at Sea. London : Michael Joseph, (1978). First Edition. Pp [1]-256,+ 16 pp plates. Index. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. John Pratt, pen name John Winton (b May 3, 1931 in London d. April 27, 2001, London). What sort of man wins the Victoria Cross? In The Victoria Cross at Sea, a new biographical study of 124 winners from theRoyal and Dominion Navies, the Fleet Air Arm, Royal Marines and Coastal Co mmand, John Winton shows that the answer is : almost anybody. The only common factors the winners shared were extreme gallantry and. devotion to duty in the presence of the enemy. Naval VCs have been won in places as far apart in time and distance as the Baltic in 1854 and Japan in 1945, in trenchesfrom the Crimea to the Western Front, in harbours from Dar es Salaam to Ze ebrugge, from the Barents to the Java Sea, from New Zealand to the North Atlantic, and from China to the Channel. They have been won in battleships and trawlers, in submarines and in aircraft, on horseback and in hand-to-handfighting. Age and rank meant nothing. Boy Cornwell was not seventeen at Ju tland, and Frederick Parslow was in his sixtieth year when he won his VC inAnglo-Californian. Commander Unwin won his Cross at Gallipoli but VCs were won alongside him by two of his midshipmen and two Able Seamen. By no mean s were all the winners British: Ingouville came from the Channel Islands; William Hall was a Canadian, a coloured man who was the son of a freed slave; William Seeley was an American citizen, from New England; while William Johnstone, the first man on the lower deck to win a VC, was not a seaman buta stoker, and was most probably Swedish or German. In later life, the VC w inners had as varied fortunes as the backgrounds they came from. Some became Admirals of the Fleet, others were court-martialled and dismissed the Service. Some died of old age in their homes, others committed suicide in despair and grief. From action despatches, citations, memoirs, printed books, newspaper cuttings, ships' muster rolls, private correspondence, family photographs and birth, death and marriage certificates, from memorials and tombstones in country churchyards, John Winton has produced the first attempt to get behind the Cross and take a look at the man - his family, his Servicecareer, his subsequent life, and his home and background. - from the dj.

188 WOODWARD, Sandy, Admiral ROBINSON, Patrick One Hundred Days : The Memoirs of the Falklands Battle Group Commander. First American Edition in dustjacket
Naval institute press, Annapolis, 1992, ISBN:1557506515 
WOODWARD, Sandy, Admiral. One Hundred Days : The Memoirs of the Falklands Battle Group Commander. With Patrick Robinson. Annapolis, Maryland : Naval Institute Press, (1992). First American Edition. Pp (10),[xi]-xix,(5),360 + 12 pp plates. Maps in text. 8vo. black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Day,The Falkland Islands, South Georgia and The South Sandwich Islands 331. "O n 2 April 1982 Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands. The British responsewas swift, some said foolhardy. The mission of the Battle Group under the command of Rear Admiral Sandy Woodward presented a challenge that seemed all but insurmountable, and it was to require men of the highest calibre, professionalism and fortitude to carry it off. It also required exceptional leadership. On that day Admiral Woodward was on Fleet exercises in the Mediterranean; a tentative desire for action expressed in his diary was ironically fulfilled as he was thrown into an experience he could never have wished for, would never repeat, and certainly will not forget. From leaving Gibraltar to his return to Brize Norton, one hundred days elapsed - and, on the way, it had been a very close call. At times reflective and personal, at other times revealing the steely logic of a supreme military tactician, these engrossing memoirs take us south through the vast, lonely waters of the Atlantic as hopes for peace faded and strategies of war evolved, then became reality, victory and aftermath. They tell of the repulse of the Argentinian navy and the defeat of their air forces; of the sinking of the Belgrano; and of the daring amphibious landing at Carlos Water, eight thousand miles from home. One Hundred Days is unique as a dramatic portrayal of the world ofmodem naval warfare, where equipment is of astomshing sophistication but t he margins for human courage and error are as wide as in the days of Nelson; and it is unique, too, in its revelations of the mind of commander involved in planning one of this century's most audacious ripostes to an unwelcome invader." front dj flap.

Naval Institute Press, Annapolis, MD , 1998, ISBN:1557509387 
WOOLDRIDGE, E.T. (ed.). The Golden Age Remembered : U.S. Naval Aviation, 1919-1941. Annapolis, MD : Naval Institute Press, (1998). First Printing. Pp [i]-xix,(3),[1]-323,(5),+ 24 pp plates. Index. 8vo, brick red cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Never in the history of aviation was there a more exciting and colorful period of rapid development and public romance with aviators and their magnificent flying machines than the decades between the worldwars. It was a time of air shows and races, record flights across the ocea ns and over the poles, phenomenal technological innovations, and daredevil pilots with whom the world fell in love. The U.S. Navy produced more than its share of these individuals and accomplishments, and thanks to former naval aviator and renowned historian E. T. Wooldridge there is now an accurateand lively account of this glamorous golden age. Not only does the book fi ll a void in the history of U.S. naval aviation, but it is the first to include the reminiscences of legendary pilots, engineers, and innovators who were leaders in the development of aircraft carriers, rigid airships, and long-range flying boats. Wooldridge's well-researched, flowing narrative is seasoned with the intimacy and immediacy of firsthand experience and friendship with many of the unforgettable speed seekers, death-defying test pilots, and indomitable aviation personalities. Rear Adm. Alfred M. Pride, Tommy Tomlinson, and Admirals Jimmy Thach and Thomas Moorer, to name but a few, relive in their own words the creation of naval aviation tactics and doctrine and the dramatic improvements in technology that helped secure victory inWorld War II. From the unforgettable voyage of the NC-4 across the Atlanti c in May 1919 to the last bows of the memorable Curtiss Helldiver, as war approached, U.S. Navy aviators, explorers, and pioneers led the way, their names and deeds indelibly imprinted in the record books and on the American consciousness." - from the dj.
