An excellent book, as can be expected from Norman Friedman. The title is a little bit misleading. The book doesn't deal with naval warfare in the First World War as such, but concentrates exclusively on the struggle between the German and British navies in the North Sea. Other combatants, or indeed war theatres, are hardly mentioned.

Within those limits, you get a first class treatment of the subject, not only the battles between the big ships, but also submarines, commercial warfare, coastal craft.... Particularily interesting is the impact of technological and logistical considerations upon operations. A must read. ( )
