Sir Walter Raleigh at the time of an earlier great queen had written that ‘There are two ways in which England may be afflicted. The one by invasio. he other by impeachment of our Trades. The rise of the German Navy from the early 1890s to 1914 was a remarkable achievement. A navy demands a multitude of special skills both in the construction of ships and the training of the men to serve in them. The Germans lacked experience equally in the manufacture of armour-plate and heavy naval ordnance as in gunnery, signalling, and manoeuvring a large number of ships at sea. Nor did they possess any naval traditions or history.
To the memory of Arthur Marder. The influence of the German Emperor – Britain’s new alliances – Admiral Fisher appointed First Sea Lord – The need for naval reforms – The conception of the Dreadnought, and her critics. An onlooker described the launch of HMS Dreadnought as ‘the greatest sight I have ever seen – it made me proud of my country and of the Navy’.

The Great War at Sea: 1914-1918. Author: Richard Hough. Publisher: Endeavour Press Lt. 2013. And it witnessed the greatest naval battle of all time. In ‘The Great War At Sea: 1914-1918’, the historian Richard Hough tells the story of those naval battles and how they shaped the eventual outcome of the war. It is a history as much of men as of ships; men like Sir John Jellicoe, ‘Jacky’ Fisher, and Winston Churchill, who together succeeded in jolting the Royal Navy out of its nineteenth-century complacency.
As much a history of men as of guns and ships, this contest pitted England's Winston Churchill, an arrogant but hard-working leader; the influential ex-First Sea Lord "Jacky" Fisher; and Commander-in-Chief of the Grand Fleet Sir John Jellicoe against Germany's autocratic Kaiser Wilhelm and the men under his command.
Hough isn't really interested enough in submarine warfare to focus much attention on it, and the book is too short in any event for that.
Hough focuses mostly on these two countries, covering the dreadnaught race and Jutland battle very well, but leaving me feeling that something is missing. Hough isn't really interested enough in submarine warfare to focus much attention on it, and the book is too short in any event for that.
