About This Book

The British Royal Navy has been sharply criticized for tactical errors in Asia during the years leading to WWII. In particular, the deployment of the Repulse and the Prince of Wales, and their catastrophic loss, has been characterized as part of a flawed and ineffective strategy. Andrew Boyd argues that the loss of these warships has overshadowed the RN's broader success in securing control of the Indian Ocean. The book moves authoritatively between grand strategy, intelligence, accounts of specific operations, and technical assessment of ships and weapons. It effectively challenges established views of the RN's capabilities and performance, and will change understandings of Britain's role in the early years of the war.
