Summary: Explanation, using models and cartoons, of the 'Wave Attack' and the 'Sector Attack' offered "for the interest and general information of US aviators."
Description: Stress is placed on the British belief in the aerial torpedo as a prime offensive weapon, their great experience with that weapon, the necessity for mutual support among the torpedo planes, and for a fluid approach in the face of changes in the tactical situation. Each method of attack is explained stage by stage, with the reasons for the action, lively evasive tactics by the target and how they may be overcome, and the correct methods for minimising any threats from enemy fighter cover.
