Professor Christopher M. Bell of Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia luanched his new book Churchill and Sea Power [Oxford University Press, 2012] with a presentation in the “Authors on Deck” series at the United States Naval Heritage Center. This important work is sure to become a standard in the field and is reviewed by Christopher Stirling in the forthcoming issue of Finest Hour. Stirling’s soundings find that Bell anchors his conclusions on the shoals of firm archival research. The result throws overboard the traditional view of Churchill’s dealings with the Royal Navy and sets the ship on a new tack with fair winds and following seas.
