Command at Sea, Volume XI - Bywater's War
In the late 1920s, naval analyst and former spy Hector C. Bywater
wrote what today would be called a "techno-thriller." His novel
described a hypothetical conflict between Japan and the USA, set in
his near future, 1931. His background in naval tactics, ship design,
and history made him the perfect choice to write the story, and it
proved to be wildly popular. In addition to being well-written and
exciting, he described many advances in naval technology, such as the
rise of naval aviation. But his story was also rooted in the past
(including the use of poison gas), and concluded with a Jutland-style
clash between the two great fleets.
