Most people think of World War I only in terms of trench warfare and biplanes, but with Naval Battles of the First World War, Geoffrey Bennett reveals an important but often overlooked aspect: the sea. This classic history of the Great War at sea combines graphic and stirring accounts of all the principle naval engagements-battles overseas, in British waters and, for the first time, under the sea-with analysis of the strategy and tactics of both sides. Vividly recounting these battles, Geoffrey Bennett confirms the Allied navies' vital contribution to victory. Illustrated with maps, plans, and contemporary photographs, this detailed, meticulously researched account brings long-overdue attention to the naval history of World War I.
