Despite a few glaring typos, this book lives up to its billing. Plus, it has lots of photos (both pre-war and wartime) of the various coastal naval air units employed by the Germans. I learned quite a lot about the history of these units, many of which were later disbanded as the war went on and absorbed into the Luftwaffe as part of Hermann Goering's desire to control all air units.
As previous reviewers have noted, there are a disturbing number of typos/grammatical errors. "Pay role", in tact" etc etc. It says in the blurb "Adam Thompson is an English and History teacher". Well the history is fine, but the English might need some work!
Perhaps unfair to blame the author, but his name is on the book, so he has to take responsibility. It's almost as though it was proof-read by a machine??
Maybe not as detailed as I would like but it is the only book on this subject that clearly describes the forces, how they were used, and examines their failings clearly, and easily. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
