The Japanese Page 15 army and navy maintained separate air arms that were not known for inter­service cooperation.  But British thought was thoroughly exercised by the legal and moral problems of bombing, and many articles and books appeared.  The Royal Navy made several raids of this sort during the War of 1812 with towns being bombarded and destruction carried out by shore parties.  Spaight noted that during the American Civil War destruction of cities and the civilian economy became routine and quoted General Philip Sheridan: 'Reduction to poverty brings prayers for peace more surely and more quickly than does destruction of human life, as the selfishness of man has demonstrated in more than one great conflict' [18].

When all of this was working well and the target conditions were ideal, the results were good enough to make the fliers worry, but the conditions were seldom good, and extravagant amounts of ammunition were consumed with little effect.  In fog or above the clouds nothing worked, but then the same was true for the fliers.  One of the reasons the Luftwaffe favored dive bombers was the efficiency demonstrated by their Flak on these kinds of run.  Professor A V Hill dismissed it 'as based on sloppy thinking and bad arithmetic' [ 2 ].

It might save itself by violent evasive maneuvers, but if the first rounds were not placed accurately enough to produce bursts, there was no warning.  Photograph courtesy of Bernd Röde.  National Archives photograph 80­G­700311.  The success of XAF in the fleet exercises in early 1939 put the Navy on a strong radar development program.

Determining the true course of events and the reason for the failure to observe the radar that followed the ship during the entire flight have engaged the detective instincts of four investigators in Britain and Germany.
