From the Dreadnought to Scapa Flow

by ARTHUR Marder | 30 May 2013
Category: General History
Synopsis
The five volumes that constitute Arthur MarderÆs From the Dreadnought to Scapa Flow represented arguably the finest contribution to the literature of naval history since Alfred Mahan. A J P Taylor wrote that æhis naval history has a unique fascination. To unrivalled mastery of sources he adds a gift of simple narrative . . . He is beyond praise, as he is beyond cavil.Æ - The five volumes were subtitled The Royal Navy in the Fisher Era, 1904û1919 and they are still, despite recent major contributions from Robert Massie and Andrew Gordan, regarded by many as the definitive history of naval events leading up to and including the Great War. This first volume covers many facets of the history of the Royal Navy during the pre-war decade, including the economic and political background such as the 1906 Liberal Government hostility towards naval spending. Inevitably, however, attention moves to the German naval challenge, the arms race and the subsequent Anglo-German rivalry, and, finally, the British plans for the blockade of the German High Seas Fleet. A new introduction by Barry Gough, the distinguished Canadian maritime and naval historian, assesses the importance of MarderÆs work and anchors it firmly amongst the great naval narrative histories of this era. - This new paperback edition will bring a truly great work to a new generation of historians and general readers.
