  • Britain's War At Sea, 1914-1918by Greg Kennedy

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    In Britain, memory of the First World War remains dominated by the trench warfare of the Western Front.

As such, this volume is a welcome corrective to what is arguably an historical neglect of the naval aspect... more...
