Drawing upon a wealth of previously classified documents, the book reveals how the Admiralty and Air Ministry became interlocked in a bitter political struggle over which of their military strategies could best meet Britain's future foreign policy challenges. Providing an important and balanced overview of the complex issues involved, it offers not only a better understanding of Cold War political and military history, but highlights debates that are still highly relevant in the twenty-first century.
