Neglected Skies: The Demise of British Naval Power in the Far East, 1922–42 - Angus Britts

I'm roughly a quarter of the way into this book, and I'm finding it difficult to escape the conclusion that this book is garbage. It reminds me of the sort of stuff I wrote as an MA student: contradictory arguments in purplish prose that demonstrate only a partial familiarity with the scholarship on the subject. The only thing that is stopping me from throwing it at the wall is my desire to avoid having to do any home repairs.
