"Empire of the Deep. " Fully comprehensive treatment of its subject.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Empire of the Deep: The Rise and Fall of the British Navy (Hardcover)
Such is the wide-ranging "panoramic" view of naval history, I find it an advantage to 'dip in' here and there, other wise reading from cover to cover becomes an impossible read. However; for any one intere4sted in Naval history, this is the book -- but it requires perseverance and dedicated reading - all worthwhile and rewarding.. I like eit immensely because of ongoing interest in the history of the British Navy.. By way of com parison, I have read Sam Willis's title "The glorious First of June" An equally brilliant treatment.
