"Our Navy in the War" is nonfiction book, which discuses the role of the US Navy in WWI. It was written during the war and complied afterwards. As such it includes a volume, seemingly written during the war, and two written afterward, as well as the text of several victory speeches concerning the navy. also included is a brief overview of the Marine Corps role on the Western front.

I enjoyed the subject matter and it flowed at a good pace for the most part. I had little knowledge of WWI naval operations before hand so I cannot testify to the depth of the material presented.

My biggest gripe is the lack of potentially interesting points due to secrecy necessary during war time. Normally this would not be an issue, I don't mind tangential learning, but it is hard to look up information on anything WWI era. I would have loved to learn more about specific anti submarine technology as well as specific methods for Naval operations, mentioned but not elaborated on. Another complaint would be the propaganda feel throughout the book, it is littered with pro US bias.

I liked "Our Navy in the War," it is no masterpiece nor a comprehensive overview of US Navy in WWI, but for the price you could do worse.

I selected this book because it was in the World War II category. But it's about the US Navy during World War I, which I don't usually prefer to read about. I found it to be factual without any exaggerations of the role the US Navy played during that conflict.

A great book that really describes the way it was for the navy before world war one and the first great build up of this service. I recommend this book to all history buffs.
