Book Description

22 Oct 1998
From its fledgling beginnings at the start of World War I, by the war's end the Dover Patrol had grown into one of the most important Royal Navy commands of the war, performing several duties simultaneously in the southern North Sea and Dover Straits. The ships of the Dover Patrol mounted anti-submarine patrols, the continuous escorting of merchantmen, hospital and troop ships, guarding the southernmost waters of the North Sea, laying and maintaining anti-submarine nets, sweeping up German minefields and laying minefields in the Dover Strait, and the bombardment of enemy positions on the Belgian coast. After its celebrated blockade operations upon Zeebrugge and Ostend in April 1918, its reputation was assured and was held in high esteem by the Allied powers. This text brings to life the stories of derring-do in the war at sea by the men of the Dover Patrol, relating the many acts of heroism and bravery.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book about an interesting front 20 Mar 2000
This is a very good book about a little known naval front in WWI. This book covers the channel struggle during WWI. The author is well informed and has a captivating style. The text is somewhat biased towards the british side and I also missed some more technical data about the ships involved, but I enjoyed it very much anyway. I do recommend it to any body interested in WWI naval history.
