Stalking the U-Boat

Frustrations and delays aside, naval aviation made considerable progress in the late fall and winter of 1917–1918. Commander Hutch Cone and his aides established a capable and efficient headquarters organization. Construction in widely dispersed locales commenced. New programs in Ireland, England, and Italy emerged. Limited combat operations began at Le Croisic, Ile Tudy, Killingholme, and elsewhere. The powerful German drive caused great excitement, but exercised little lasting effect on aviation programs. With better weather in the offing, the United States was about to enter the fray.
