Packed with over 300 photographs, complemented by full-color maps, Naval Warfare provides a detailed guide to the background and conduct of World War I naval operations, describing the struggle to win control of the high seas around the globe. It describes the actions at sea between the German High Seas Fleet and the British Royal Navy, as well as the U-boat threat to merchant shipping from North America. Naval Warfare includes such battles as Coronel, the Falklands, Jutland, Dogger Bank, and Zeebrugge, and the eventual fate of the German Fleet at Scapa Flow. Detailed maps accompany boxes explaining key events, personalities, and vessels.
