Abstract:

The author begins with the 1905 battle of Tsushima, where the Japanese annihilated the Russians in what is arguably the most decisive naval battle ever fought. There are also thorough descriptions of the infamous World War I clash at Jutland, the World War II engagement at Midway, the high-tech combat of the Persian Gulf War, and much more. Between tales of battle, Spector describes the changing lives and duties of sailors, giving a sense for why certain navies were able to accomplish their objectives, while others failed.
