WW1 had shown how very vulnerable Britain was to hostile submarines in the Atlantic, and the development of bombers had made much of Britain vulnerable. After the fall of France, the enemy was much nearer and could easily use airfields in Belgium and France. The whole coastline opposite Britain, from the Arctic Circle to the border between France and Spain was in enemy hands. Joncey
