The second in a projected set of five volumes dealing with Anglo America Naval Relations, this volume brings together documents from the period 1919-1939 which was dominated by a series of naval arms limitation and disarmament conferences. The book also includes a section of documents that deal with encounters of serving officers and men of the two navies and their observations on each other's navy, while the final section details the hesitant and limited steps towards co-operation during 1937-1939 when the prospect of a second world war looked increasingly likely. Drawing on a wide range of documents from British and American archives, this volume provides a fascinating overview and insight into relations between the two navies during the interwar period.
