Post New Naval Books 13th Dec 2007

Hi everyone.

This is the first of many regular installments of new releases of naval books which may be of interest to our members and guests. While we will not be reviewing the books here, you are welcome to add your views on these or other books in our naval book forum. Also, we add each of these books to our online shop where our visitors are welcome to shop for them, knowing that every penny we make on naval book orders is spent on maintaining and upgrading our naval history sites and forum.

Here are our first four entries:

Moving Bases. Royal Navy Maintenance Carriers and Monabs by Cdr David Hobbs MBE RN Retd.

In this ground-breaking book Commander David Hobbs, a former Royal Navy pilot, describes the logistic support that enabled British aircraft carriers to carry out extended operations across the globe during World War 2 and the Korean Conflict. The deployment of specialised aircraft and component maintenance ships together with mobile air bases as key elements of the deployed fleets allowed the Royal Navy to fight as professional equals alongside the US Navy in the Pacific and Indian Oceans. The book brings together original material and images, much of which is previously unpublished.
