"Britts's work is a success.... [He] communicates the depth of naval strategy and the technicalities of naval aviation well enough that one unfamiliar with these things before picking up the work can easily make sense of what is an understandably complicated field." --H-War
"This book ... gathers together a host of useful thoughts about the problems of block obsolescence and the integration of new capabilities within a fleet in peacetime." --Naval War College Review
