Churchill and Sea Power studies Winston Churchill's record as a naval strategist and his impact as the most prominent guardian of Britain's sea power in the modern era. The book debunks many popular myths surrounding controversial episodes in both World Wars. In a period dominated by declining resources, global threats and rapid technological change, it was increasingly air rather than sea power that Churchill looked to as the foundation of Britain's security.
