Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
On the ocean wave as a boy sailor in 1914... the book gives a brief history of the author during his sea going time on the Battle cruiser HMS Tiger during world war one - concentrating on the battles of Dogger Bank and Jutland.
While the author apologises in advance for any factual mistakes due to the passage of time (it was written in the '70's) it is remarkable in the annecdotal stories of life, both as a 'cadet' and on board ship.
For those wishing for a blow by blow technical analysis of Tiger during the period - this is not for you. If you want to improve your understanding of how the crew felt about the vessel and the times, then it is most illuminating.
Either way, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
