Here is a book I read lately and found extremely interesting and very well written:
Naval Aviation in the First World War by R.D.Layman. Combining some of my main historical interests - naval warfare, early military aviation and the first world war, with a bit of Churchill thrown in for good measure - this was a great read and I highly recommend it.

I am currently reading "The Right of the Line" from John Terraine. This book describes the role of the Royal Air Force during the European War of 1939-1945.

Re: Naval Aviation in the First World War. This was the last of Dick's books, completed just before his death, and unfortunately not a best seller. Dick, a good friend of mine, spent many years researching the early years of Naval aviation. His archives were bequeathed to the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton in the UK, a superb museum if you are ever over there. I particularly recommend his book on the Cuxhaven Raid as well worth searching for - look in my library for the full citation, although some of you may already have a copy.
Now for an shameless plug - you could also try my own book Ben-my-Chree which covers Royal Navy Air Service operations at Gallipoli and the Eastern Med 1915-1917. The writing is OK, but the collection of over 100 photos are tremendous!

#3 Sounds like a very interesting book, Mr. Burns, and just down my street interest wise. I just cannot seem to find "The Woman of my Heart" anywhere available for sale...

Thank you for the invitation to Aerial Warfare group, BOB81!
Because my focus is on early aviation and aerial warfare I would like to revive this dormant thread with my first post.
A pleasant surprise recently came from the records of another LT member and author, mauroantonellini. Mauro Antonellini is an author of an excellent italian book, "Salvat ubi lucet : la base idrovolanti di Porto Corsini e i suoi uomini : 1915-1918" Well, language is a bit of problem but the book is well worth the exercise :)
Mauro Antonellini's book is highly recommended, as well as "Ben-my-Chree - Woman of My Heart: Isle of Man Packet Steamer and Seaplane Carrier" by Ian M. Burns, of course.
