Stalking the U-Boat: U.S. Naval Aviation in Europe during World War I

Geoffrey L. Rossano


This book studies U.S. naval aviation operations in Europe during World War I. The navy's experiences in this conflict laid the foundations for the later emergence of aviation as a crucial—sometimes dominant—element of fleet operations, yet those origins have been previously poorly understood and documented. Begun as antisubmarine operations, naval aviation posed enormous logistical, administrative, personnel, and operational problems. The book charts how the USN developed this capability, on foreign soil in the midst of desperate conflict.

Keywords: U.S. naval aviation, operations, Europe, World War I, navy, conflict, fleet operations, antisubmarine operations, USN, foreign soil, conflict
