Editorial Reviews


(T)his book will appeal to anyone interested in naval or military history, as well as students and scholars of the British Navy. NAUTICAL RESEARCH JOURNAL An effective and competent discussion of a particularly turbulent period in British naval history. .. Grimes' arguments.are convincing and well reasoned. THE NORTHERN MARINER, July 2012 By far the most cohesive, well researched and thorough treatment of British naval war planning of the period. . This is an excellent book and a must read for all historians of the period. It is without doubt now one of the key works on the Royal Navy in the Fisher era. CANADIAN JOURNAL OF HISTORY The author's case is well argued and back with solid evidence. WARSHIPS As a corrective to the still commonplace view that pre-World War I British naval administration.was the preserve of incompetent amateurs, Grimes's study is of great value. He also drives another nail in the coffin of the myth.that the Royal Navy had to be dragged, kicking and screaming, into the twentieth century. JOURNAL OF BRITISH STUDIES
