The transition to modern war at sea began during the period of the Sino-Japanese War (1894-1895) and the Spanish-American War (1898) and was propelled forward rapidly by the advent of the dreadnought and the nearly continuous state of war that culminated in World War I. By 1922, most of the elements that would define sea power in the 20th century were in place. Written by one of our foremost military historians, this volume acknowledges the complex nature of this transformation, focusing on imperialism, the growth of fleets, changes in shipbuilding and armament technology, and doctrines about the deployment and use of force at sea, among other factors. There is careful attention to the many battles fought at sea during this period and their impact on the future of sea power. The narrative is supplemented by a wide range of reference materials, including a detailed census of capital ships built during this period and a remarkable chronology of actions at sea during World War I.

4. Battleship [2002]

Book
352 p., [16] p. of plates : ill., maps ; 24 cm.
For the first 40 years of the twentieth century, the battleship - or rather, the idea of the battleship - ruled the high seas. Britain and Germany, America and Japan, France, Italy and Russia: all invested hugely in the power and prestige which these behemoths could project. But long before the end of the Second World War, the battleship was dead in the water - either literally, most often sunk by carrier-borne aircraft, or metaphorically, deprived of a raison d'etre in the war at sea. It was an extraordinary and, for many, entirely unexpected reversal of fortunes. HP Willmott traces the story of the battleship from start to finish. He points out the fallacies underlying the Anglo-German naval race in the years before the First World War. He takes issue with the orthodox view of Jutland and claims it as the greatest British naval victory. He reassesses the interwar Washington and London treaties and looks closely at the vessels which resulted from their strictures. He contrasts the plans navies then made for their battlefleets, and gives a comprehensive account of the triumphs and disasters that attended the deployment of battleships during the Second World War. "Battleship" is an elegy for a magnificent class of warship. It is also a fascinating and often controversial analysis of how these ships came to be, and why ultimately they failed.

The history of 20th century warfare, from the strategies and tactics of World War I that had changed little since the Napoleonic Wars some one hundred years earlier, to the dawn of a new millenium where air power and advanced technology play a vital role in shaping future conflicts. A wide ranging and authoritative text, written under the tutelage of two senior academic staff at the Royal Military Acadamy in Sandhurst.

The only comparative analysis available of the great navies of World War I, this work studies the Royal Navy of the United Kingdom, the German Kaiserliche Marine, the United States Navy, the French Marine Nationale, the Italian Regia Marina, the Austro-Hungarian Kaiserliche und Konigliche Kriegsmarine, and the Imperial Russian Navy to demonstrate why the war was won, not in the trenches, but upon the waves. It explains why these seven fleets fought the way they did and why the war at sea did not develop as the admiralties and politicians of 1914 expected. After discussing each navy's goals and circumstances and how their individual characteristics impacted the way they fought, the authors deliver a side-by-side analysis of the conflict's fleets, with each chapter covering a single navy. Parallel chapter structures assure consistent coverage of each fleet--history, training, organization, doctrine, materiel, and operations--and allow readers to easily compare information among the various navies. The book clearly demonstrates how the naval war was a collision of 19th century concepts with 20th century weapons that fostered unprecedented development within each navy and sparked the evolution of the submarine and aircraft carrier. The work is free from the national bias that infects so many other books on World War I navies. As they pioneer new ways of viewing the conflict, the authors provide insights and material that would otherwise require a massive library and mastery of multiple languages. Such a study has special relevance today as 20th-century navies struggle to adapt to 21st-century technologies. ".

A team of naval historians have pooled their expertise for this definitive single-volume reference on how the major navies of World War II were organized and how they trained, operated, and fought. They provide a point-by-point evaluation on the inner workings of the navies of the United States, the United Kingdom, the British Commonwealth, Japan, Germany, Italy, France, and the Soviet Union. Each Navy has its own chapter with such key features as weaponry, training, logistics, and doctrine. In bringing together data buried in specialized works in various languages, the authors deliver a fresh, multi-national view of the naval war.

From the era of Napoleon and Lord Nelson to the Anglo-German naval race before the first world war, naval warfare underwent a slow transition from the era of wooden sailing fleets to that of the modern steel navy. Naval Warfare 1815-1914 details the technological breakthroughs of steam power, armour, artillery and torpedoes that brought changes not only to warship design, but also to naval strategy and tactics. The rivalries of the naval powers, their wars and expeditions are investigated with special attention to the evolving state of naval technology. Because the relative industrial capabilities of seafaring countries were reflected in their naval building programmes, a focus on industrial development provides an important link between the matters investigated and the broader history of the period. The three leading fleets of the period (Britain, France and Russia) take precedent, but the book also addresses the decline after 1815 of the Spanish and Dutch navies, as well as the rise before 1914 of German, Japanese, and American sea power.
