On His Majesty’s Service: Observations of the British Home Fleet from the Diary, Reports, & Letters of Joseph H. Wellings, Assistant U.S. Naval Attache, London, 1940-41
Joseph H. Wellings (au); John B. Hattendorf (ed). During the period between the outbreak of World War II in Sept. 1939 & the attack on Pearl Harbor in Dec. 1941, Am. leaders became increasingly interested in providing assistance to Britain in the war against Hitler while steering clear of any direct participation in the war. The U.S. did become involved in a number of activities to assist Britain, short of war, such as the exchange of tech. information between the Royal Navy & the U.S. Navy. Joseph H. Wellings was the first of the group to go to London & to concentrate on fleet operations & tactics. His assignment was to observe the fleet at sea & to examine shipboard practices in convoy operations, gunnery & fleet maneuvers & to report back to the Fleet Training Div. in the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations. This vol. contains the observations he wrote from July 31, 1940 to June 12, 1941. Illus.
