Mission Impossible

Post by Enrico Cernuschi » Mon Sep 26, 2005 10:56 am

Hello Guys,

15 years ago I was able to give a glance, in a library, at a book written in English about the surface actions fought by the Royal Navy during the Second World War (or there were the WWI Actions too? I don't remember, unfortunatly).

I did the mistake not to buy that book that day and now I'm wandering trying to find it again.

I have got not the title or the author nor the publisher (Conway?). I remember only it was small, maybe grey and ordered by dates.

May someone help me? It's almost an impossible task, but it would be very useful indeed for my researches.


Thank you for any help.

I am afraid Enrico but without knowing more details this is indeed a "mission impossible". Have you perhaps tried to consult the COPAC online searchable database? I have put Royal Navy in World War II in the title box and got the following hits:
