A very strong and entertaining narrative, especially considering the amount of technical detail present.

Whereas Dreadnought was a political and social history of the pre-Great War naval arms race, this is an operational-level history of the war at sea. Definitely recommend it both to fans of Dreadnought, or the Guns of August for that matter, as well as to naval history buffs.

Who knew the English-German naval war was worth delving into (although it does feel like a Russian novel sometimes)? A brilliant followup to 'Dreadnought,' which, weirdly, doesn't seem to be in the MultCo system.

This book is so interesting and well written! It's a real pleasure to read. I recommended it to anybody who enjoys history, especially naval history. I can't wait to read "Dreadnought" by the same author!
