This book tells the story of incompetent Senior Officers

being responsible for the death of so many young aviators.

Non aviator Captains are singled out for blame.

I reviewed it sometime ago (review lost in the site update). It is badly written and not well researched.

It is the thoughts of one man, all be it someone who served but it still lacked academic rigor.

Lt(P) RNVR Henry Amyas Adlam . Lacking academic rigour? Harrow and University education. Thoughts of one man? 757 890 and 1839 NAS's-- 7 different aircraft carriers. last job DLCO on Colossus.
Badly written and not well researched? Henry is now blind.

But if you read the Amazon reviews they point out that what he may have had in first experience, he lacked in actual knowledge of what was going on in the wider naval world. Its just another 'nasty officers not knowing what they were doing' rant which is why Norman loves it so.

Your cover is shit Epsom Norman Q;

Spruance, for all his Carrier faults, was a Sea Eagle compared to our Penguin Vian. Vian, known for his Cossack rescue of the Altmark, was well at home clicking his heels on the Parade Ground at Whale Island, but was ill-considered as Head of the !st Aircraft Carrier Squadron aboard Formidable. Post war, on Implacable, he took the Fleet Carrier back up the Jossingfjord at great risk, so that he could have his photograph taken at the site of the Altmark rescue. See the book " Sea Eagles led by Penquins". Vian is featured.
Do one. When you get there, do another.

Your lack of academic rigour reminds me of some Internet throbber who mocked the concept of 'Hobbes World' as - he argued - Hobbes had famous, learned oppos who sent him mailies.

Doesn't change the fact it lacks a coherant narrative and difficult to read. If I had not been reviewing it I would have stopped reading after the first few chapters.
