Abstract:

"Examines the sea war between Germany and Britain. The face-off between two great navies of dreadnoughts--fast battleships that were defended by big guns only--plays like a Homeric battle between Cyclops, the warring powers hurling titanic levels of firepower in battles that produced such catastrophes as Gallipoli and Jutland. Massie spins a tale of intricate strategy, and examines the larger-than-life personalities--Churchill and Jellicoe among the Brits, and Pohl and Tirpitz among the Germans--who masterminded these battles that forever changed the practice of war"--Container.
