A History of the Royal Navy: World War I. By Mike Farquharson-Roberts
Reviewed by Dr Gregory P. Gilbert
THE ROYAL Navy has for centuries played a vital if sometimes misunderstood or even at times unsung part in Britain’s history. The new History of the Royal Navy series published in association with The National Museum of the Royal Navy aims to throw new light on the Royal Navy. For its timeliness and concise reassessment of the events in the maritime environment, the volume on World War I by Mike Farquharson-Roberts is one of the most important history books available today.
