Naval Policy Between the Wars : The Period of Reluctant Rearmament 1930-1939 (Vol 2) (Paperback)
about this item
Picking up the story in 1930, this volume covers the rise of the European dictatorships alongside continuing attempts at controlling arms expenditure through diplomacy and treaties. Eventually, Italian, German, and indeed Japanese aggression diminished the prospects for peace, to the point where Britain felt forced to rearm. The Navy’s use of the precious few years leading up to the outbreak of war is a crucial section of the book and forms a fitting conclusion to this important study of the inter-war years.
