From Man-of-War to Submarine
Britain's foremost military historian, Sir John Keegan, brilliantly examines the realities of war at sea.
In Battle at Sea, John Keegan applies to maritime warfare the technique that he put to such brilliant effect in his classic of war on land, The Face of Battle. He concentrates on four key conflicts: Trafalgar, Jutland, Midway and the Battle of the Atlantic. He takes us into the very heart of the fighting while providing a remarkable panoramic view of naval warfare through the centuries.'Rich in unexpected facts and insights-Keegan's historical command is dazzling.' Jan Morris, Independent'Among Britain's distinguished group of military historians-John Keegan is outstanding.' Michael Howard, London Review of Books
