The five volumes that constitute Arthur Marder's 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 'his 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.'

The five volumes were subtitled The Royal Navy in the Fisher Era, 1904–1919 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.

The third volume deals with the controversial clash between the German High Seas fleet and the British Grand Fleet and Battlecruiser Fleet at Jutland and its immediate aftermath, and the author's intricate charting of this great battle is still recognised and a major step forward in our understanding of the events.

A new introduction by Barry Gough, the distinguished Canadian maritime and naval historian, assesses the importance of Marder's 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.

Volume Three, Jutland and After is a mighty treatise on this climactic battle which has been mired in controversy since. While over 500 books address this battle in some form, and some most recently published for the battle’s centenary, Marder’s treatment remains the standard by which others are judged. Again maps – some 16 of them – accompany the text.

Australian Naval Institute - Tim Coyle

Remains a stunning work of scholarship and naval history. Marder writes beautifully, insightfully and fairly. Should still be on the bookshelf of anyone with interest in the Royal Navy in WW1.

Navy News

[An] extensive and masterly classic work of the Royal Navy in the Great War.
A prodigious work of scholarship which provides a thorough comprehensive history of naval plans, policy and naval operations throughout the war.
For any serious study of the naval side of the First World War these volumes are invaluable and most strongly recommended.

Scuttlebutt - Friends of the RN Museum

This is a valuable reference work that reads easily and will satisfy the most committed enthusiast of naval history. By reprinting this work in paperback, the publisher has done a great service to the understanding of a very important period of history.

Firetrench

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.
