This book provides a detailed historical account of the evolution of the airborne anti-ship munitions, from the earliest days of barely successful torpedoes through modern day rocket powered missiles that skim the water's surface and impact ships with devastating explosions. Includes excellent coverage of specially designed aircraft, torpedoes, missiles, glides bombs, wire and radio controlled missiles, as well as ship strikes, battle damage, and photos of wartime engagements between ships, aircraft, and missiles. Also covers German and Italian equipment of World War II.
