Air War over the Nore, Jon Sutherland and Diane Canwell



Air War over the Nore, Jon Sutherland and Diane Canwell - History

The Battle of Britain and the Atlantic and the Blitz are invariably the focus of books and perceptions of the air war over and around Britain during the Second World War. Yet, it was Britain&rsquos more exposed eastern flank, from the South Foreland in the south to Bridlington in the north that faced nearly six years of unrelenting attacks by the Luftwaffe, the Kriegsmarine and, amazingly, the Corpo Aereo Italiano based in Belgium. The Italians alone launched some 150 raids on England hitting Great Yarmouth, Clacton, Harwich, Deal, Ramsgate and a host of other targets.

This book chronicles the air war around the east coast as its principle focus but also incorporate the joint operations mounted by both the Allies and the Axis forces. It looks at the preparations for invasion, the defense of vital convoys, the air defenses, the coastal blitz, ship and crew rescue and crucial docks and shipyards. With so much attention paid to the south coast, the air war over the east coast was often fought on a shoestring although it was the coast that lay closest to Germany. It was not a war of vast fleets of warships and submarines, it was conflict staged by aircraft and smaller raiding craft. It also saw the biggest mine-laying campaign in history and the largest battle fought between Axis E Boats and Allied Motor Torpedo Boats. As the tide turned in Britain&rsquos favor, the east coast became the staging post of the great bomber offensives against enemy occupied Europe and Germany itself. Yet the raiding and attacks on the east coast continued culminating in air-launched V1 attacks and finally V2 strikes.

Air War over the Nore, Jon Sutherland and Diane Canwell - History

This little known campaign against the Italian invasion of British Somalia was bravely fought by a small force of elderly RAF and Commonwealth aircraft against almost overwhelming odds. This, against a backdrop of Britain&rsquos meager assets being in demand in the much more prominent and important theatres such as Egypt and, of course, at home during the height of the Battle of Britain and the Blitz.

The history starts with the Italian&rsquos use of airpower and gas against the spear-armed Abbysinnians in 1936. In August 1940 the Italians attacked and overwhelmed British Somalia and under air cover the British evacuated to Aden. The Allies fought many air battles with the better equipped invaders and flew dangerous reconnaissance missions in preparation for the major offensives in 1941.

On the Northern Front, the first phases see aggressive air patrols and Allied reinforcements arriving from Egypt. They attacked towards Agordat pushing deep into Eritrea from the Sudan. Meanwhile to the south the South African Air Force and ground forces attacked into Italian Somalia during January and February 1941. In March the allies attacked Keren and the Italians finally surrendered. The final allied air strikes against Asmara and Massawa led to the final collapse of Italian resistance in May 1941. The campaign in Ethiopia saw General Cunningham's force advances 1,725 miles from Kenya in 53 days to reach the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa and liberating it on April 6 1941. However, the conflict was still not over &ndash there was continued resistance from 7,000 Italian troops and air operations continued against them until their surrender in September 1943.

The book includes the experiences of the men who flew the outdated aircraft of the RAF and the SAAF in the campaign and includes many quotes and incidents from both Allied and Italian pilots.

Aviation History Book Review: Berlin Airlift

The division of Germany after World War II into four occupation zones, with Berlin buried deep inside the Russian sector, was not an amicable one. The Soviets harassed vehicles on the supply route to Berlin at every opportunity, and it became painfully obvious that they intended to do everything they could to bring the capital under their full control. By the spring of 1948, the situation had reached the showdown point: On June 25, 1948, it was announced that “the Soviet administration is compelled to halt all passenger and freight traffic to and from Berlin…because of technical difficulties.”

Cut off from all land and water routes into the city, the only way the inhabitants of the French, English and American zones in Berlin could obtain the necessities of life was by air. Thus began the greatest example of using aircraft solely for humanitarian purposes to date, known as the Berlin Airlift. Although there have been at least a dozen excellent books explaining the struggles of a city under siege, few have included the behind-the-scenes political and military maneuvering in such detail as have Jon Sutherland and Diane Canwell.

One of the central figures who deserves much credit for the airlift’s success is Maj. Gen. William H. Tunner, a veteran air transport commander whose men and planes had helped keep the Fourteenth Air Force fighting in China by flying supplies over the Himalayas during the war. He brought order and discipline to the operation, and the statistics accumulated by the authors prove the point. What is not generally known is that more than 700 Soviet harassment incidents took place in the corridors—and 68 Americans, British and Germans were killed during the operations.

This is the story of the historic air defence of Malta by the RAF against the combined attacking forces of the Italian and German air forces. The island was poorly equipped when Italy declared war on Britain in June 1940 and its only defence against air attack at the outset of war were 34 heavy and 8 light anti-aircraft guns, one radar set and four Gladiator biplane fighters. The first air raids came on 11 July and from then on were an almost daily feature of life for the Maltese occupants and the island was in a state of siege. The loss of this strategic point in the central Mediterranean would threaten the major supply routes to the British Army in North Africa and deprive the Royal Navy of a vital base. Although hard-pressed at home and standing alone against Hitler?s Europe, every effort was made by Britain?s government to get supplies, munitions and replacement aircraft to enable the island to withstand the naval and airborne onslaught. Convoy after convoy attempted to get through, Hurricane and Spitfire fighters were launched from aircraft carriers with only sufficient fuel for a one-way trip to the island. Many did not survive these heroic flights. Many famous British ships were lost due to torpedo and air attack, including the carriers Ark Royal and Eagle and the battleship Barham. The siege was finally raised on 20 November 1942.This book follows the island?s wartime history, describing the heavily outnumbered RAF defence against the many air-raids and how the small bomber force took the battle to Italian shores. It is a tale of outstanding bravery by the British forces and the Maltese people.

The Royal Naval Patrol Service, or Harry Tates Navy as it was commonly known, was a unique service with its own rules and regulations. The officers and seamen were mainly ex-fishermen who had manned trawlers in Icelandic waters. The service was armed mostly with obsolete weaponry and suffered heavy casualties in the early stages of the war. The service was not confined to the seas around Britain and their small trawlers, drifters, paddle steamers, yachts and tugs saw service as far away as the Mediterranean and Newfoundland coast. Their main tasks included convoy escort duties, mine sweeping and anti-submarine work. Many awards for bravery were won including a VC. This book looks at the Service personnel, the boats, equipment and includes many first-hand accounts from crew. Lengthy Appendices include vessels names, numbers and fate.

". can be easily recommended to a general readership interested in a quick overview on the history of the RNPS and the operations of smaller naval craft during World War II."

Review by John Johnston

Sutherland and Canwell give due prominence to the bravery and fortitude shown by the officers and men of the RNPS. The latter part of the book contains an index of vessels lost and the medal roll of honour that will gratify genealogists and researchers of family history, while students of military technology will find the operations of wooden hulled motor yachts and the armed trawlers have lessons for those of minesweepers and offshore patrol vessels today. The general reader, however, will be engrossed by this fascinating and compelling story of a strange and little known part of the war at sea.

Australian Naval Institute

'Engaging' The depiction's of the RNPOS are so compelling that one feels a small burst of excitement on the admittedly rare occasions a trawler sinks submarine.

The Northern Mariner - Dec 2011

This book makes a fitting and accessible tribute.

The authors have done for the Second World War Royal Patrol Service what E Keble Chatterton did in the 1930's for its First World War predecessor, the Auxiliary patrol - produce a book that will be a definitive work on Britain's wartime Trawlers, drifters and minesweepers.

Naval Historical Collectors & research Assosiation

The superbly detailed text is enhanced significantly by nearly a hundred pages of appendices that list all trawler losses from 1939 to 1945, with additional information on each vessels and its fate, where known.

This book makes a fitting and accessible tribute.

The Naval Review NHCRA

There are many illustrations of the bravery and remarkable skills of the people and the durability of their ships, whether working as minesweepers, submarine hunters or straight convoy escorts.

It does bring home the mixture of officers and ratings from a wide assortment of backgrounds. The reading here is good value for an average price that whets the appetite for more.
