This book traces the fascinating development of modern naval warfare. It examines the effectiveness of blockade in World War 1 and the crucial role of the submarine and the aircraft carrier in World War II. It also deals in depth with the most important sea battles of the two wars. Including the Battle of Jutland the 20th century – Trafalgar – and the Battle of Midway, fought between opposing navies that never actually saw each other. The book contains authoritative colour drawings by John Batchelor of the major warships, including the price of the Japanese navy, the Yamato, and perhaps the most tragic of all fighting ships, the Tirpitz.
