The five volumes that constitute Arthur Marder's 'From the Dreadnought to Scapa Flow' represent arguably amongst the finest contributions to the literature of naval history...and are still regarded by many as the definitive history of naval events leading up to and including the First World War. This outstanding work, which has withstood the passage of time, is a first class read and deserves to be in the library of all those interested in naval history. Highly recommended.
