Attack from the Sea - A History of the U.S. Navy's Seaplane Striking Force


Retail Price: $29.95


By: William F. Trimble


Attack from the Sea - A History of the U.S. Navy's Seaplane Striking Force

An award-winning aviation historian chronicles the Navy's efforts to develop a powerful sea-based strike force through the use of long-range attack seaplanes supported by surface ships and submarines.

Attack from the Sea - A History of the U.S. Navy's Seaplane Striking Force

William Trimble traces the concept back to the early 1930s when American strategic planners sought ways to mount an assault across the Pacific with minimum air support.

But it was not until 1950, when the Navy was threatened with losing its big carriers and long-range aircraft, that the idea of a Seaplane Striking Force was resurrected.

Lured by breakthroughs in seaplane performance and the promise of the turbojet-powered Convair Sea Dart fighter and the Martin Sea Master attack flying boat, the Navy believed it could challenge the Air Force in the strategic role, the author explains, but found that the technology did not live up to expectations.


Attack from the Sea book: 248 pages, hardbound w/dust jacket, 15 illustraions.
