NAVAL AVIATION IN THE ADRIATIC, 1918 - 1991

  • $67.00
Book Type: C,O

by Danijel Frka, 424 pages, 397 illustrations

The book describes the history of naval aviation in the Adriatic region, starting from the Austro-Hungarian Empire up until 1991 and the breakup of Yugoslavia. Authors Danijel Frka and Bojan Dimitrijević sketch out the intensive and dynamic development of the naval aviation in the Adriatic in a detailed and compelling manner, as the book is equipped with almost 400 photographs – many of them published for the first time – and the color profiles of the aircraft and helicopters mentioned, along with their camouflage and markings.  The book highlights all crucial naval aviation breakthroughs of the 20th century, such as long-range reconnaissance planes, torpedo bomber seaplanes and antisubmarine aircraft, as well as the way they were employed in the region. The authors trace the origins and development of the naval aviation in the region from their humble post-WW1 beginnings, their growth in the interwar period to the aerial operations during World War Two. They especially focus on the unknown yet fascinating information on the 1941 April War, the operations of the Yugoslav Seaplane Squadron within the British RAF in Egypt in 1941 and 1943, and the actions of the Partisan seaplane fleet in 1943. At the time, the authors don’t fail to mention the post WW2 growth and diversification of the naval aviation in the SFR Yugoslavia. The Naval Aviation in the Adriatic provides an in-depth coverage on a fascinating and fast-changing aspect of aviation and warfare which had tremendous influence in shaping the history of the region.
