During the First World War the North Sea became the principal battleground between the navies of Britain and Germany. This book explains in chronological order the major encounters between Kaiser Wilhelm II's High Seas Fleet and the Royal Navy. It also includes other important operations such as mine laying and sweeping, the Zeppelin Offensive, the bomber offensive against the UK and complete background operational information within the area. Engagements of special note include The Battle of Heligoland Bight, the attempted first German Bombardment of Yarmouth, the German bombardments of Scarborough, Whitby and Hartlepool, together with the Scheer's escape and the Battle of Dogger Bank. Other actions include the Zeppelin raids, unrestricted U Boat Warfare, the Battle of Jutland and its consequences, the second Battle of Heligoland Bight, the climax and defeat of the German heavy bomber air offensive against the UK and in 1918 the Zeebrugge and Ostend raids, North Sea mine barriers and the mutiny of the High Seas Fleet.

"Excellent chronological account of the major engagements that occurred between the Royal Navy and the German High Seas Fleet during World War One."

Warship World Magazine

With a useful bibliography, a general and a ship index this is a very erudite work and is worthy of the bookshelf of those with a great interest in the naval war in WW1 as well as the general reader.

Highly recommended.

The Bookseller

A good introduction to the subject.

The Long, Long Trail

This book is certainly readable, as you would say a wine is drinkable. Perrett uses the right language and his prose is smooth. He does very well to narrate action at sea in a measured and interesting way, avoiding hype as well as hideous detail, and telling a story mch as you would hear your classic master recite myths and legends.

The Naval Review

Perrett writes with a pleasing style which makes it an enjoyable read.

Warships International Fleet Review

A useful addition to an existing library of Anglo-German naval warfare and an ideal starting point for any reader wishing to study this aspect of the Great War.
