Example text

When all the explanations and interpretations for the results of the tests, which began in November 1919 and ended five years later, had been voiced, one fact remained uncontested: a battleship of the most modern design could be sent to the bottom by a well placed bomb carried by an airplane.  Regardless of the protests voiced by the admirals about the meaning of the tests, they made the Navy conscious of air defense.  Others saw with insight that their thin decks made carriers very fragile, and the British soon began to build them with armored decks.

The success of XAF in the fleet exercises in early 1939 put the Navy on a strong radar development program. National Archives photograph 80­G­700710.  There are various published versions of this flight, each with abundant error. Determining the true course of events and the reason for the failure to observe the radar that followed the ship during the entire flight have engaged the detective instincts of four investigators in Britain and Germany. The airship broke through the clouds in the vicinity of Aberdeen, causing people to call the Dyce Station of the Auxiliary Air Force from which a plane with a photographer took off and made this photograph.

The Royal Navy made several raids of this sort during the War of 1812 with towns being bombarded and destruction carried out by shore parties.  Spaight noted that during the American Civil War destruction of cities and the civilian economy became routine and quoted General Philip Sheridan: 'Reduction to poverty brings prayers for peace more surely and more quickly than does destruction of human life, as the selfishness of man has demonstrated in more than one great conflict' [18].  None of the proposals was adopted, and September 1939 saw no international law concerning the employment of air power at all.
