Gavin J. Bailey

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Edinburgh Studies in Anglo-American Relations

Through a series of case studies, Gavin J. Bailey reveals new details of how Britain used American aircraft and integrates this with broader British statecraft and strategy. He challenges conceptions that Britain was strategically reliant on the US and reveals a complicated, asymmetrical dependency between the wartime allies.
