This book has used a series of case studies to examine the Anglo-American aircraft supply relationship in the first half of World War II. The case studies identified the factors that constrained the value of American aircraft supply. These constraints operated in the classical sense of Clausewitzian ‘friction’, or the accumulation of difficulties and circumstances that cause disappointment in any endeavour. The main causes of this friction have been identified in political, quantitative and qualitative factors that have not been sufficiently explained in previous historiography. This chapter summarizes these factors and provides a more accurate explanation of aircraft supply diplomacy and how this can inform our understanding of the wartime Anglo-American relationship.
