Book Description

20 Jun 2001 History of the Ship
Of all the major navies of the 19th century, that of the Ottoman Empire is least known. Modern Turkish archives preserve a quantity of material upon which the authors have drawn. This illustrated book contains a full list of all ships with their technical details, and ship plans of the principal classes, along with a chronology of naval developments in the century before Ataturk's nationalist revolution swept away the Ottoman Empire. New light is shed on the World War I Dardanelles campaign. Appendices list all the ships of the period along with their basic specifications and accompanying line drawings.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent summary of the period 30 Jun 2010
Verified Purchase
Readable and well illustrated. This makes for a nice introduction to the rapid technological developments of the period. It has a very broad scope so is not as detailed as R.A. Burt's work or Beeler's but makes for a good summary.
