Abstract:

The contributions of patrol aviation during World War II as the long-range patrol and reconnaissance arm of the U.S. Navy are well documented, but the development of its origins remain historically under-examined. The goal of this thesis is to perform an historical investigation of the influential forces that shaped the development of patrol aviation during the interwar period, 1918 to 1941. In order to form a thorough and objective argument, the research approaches these influential forces through an investigation from a strategic, technological, and operational perspective.
