Ian Speller analyzes the development of postwar strategic planning and the manner in which this influenced the nature of Britains armed forces in the 1940s and 1950s. By detailing the development of equipment, doctrine and the role of the Royal Marines he sheds new light on the military response to a succession of overseas crises.
