Abstract:

H.M.S. Dreadnought was the wonder of the Edwardian Age: mighty, magnificent, overwhelmingly powerful in her size, her speed, her ten 12-inch guns, and her protection of armor. She was the model of imperialism, the status symbol supreme, the ultimate deterrent of the era before the bomber. Not only was the launching of H.M.S. Dreadnought the most important naval event in the period before World War I, but her construction aroused international controversy and drew into the naval race not only Germany and England but the United States, Italy, France, and Japan as well.
