5.0 out of 5 stars Good History, 29 Sept. 2013

This review is from: British Cruisers: of the Victorian Era (Hardcover)
Norman Friedman at his best! Not only does he (as usual) command the technical detail, he places the design history of each class in the broader tactical and strategic context. Friedman does a better job explaining the "hows" and "whys" of Admiralty policy of the Victorian era than most 'academic' historians. This book contains more insight into British cruiser policy of the period than may be found elsewhere. Friedman's new evidence for the connections between the development of the armoured cruiser (from 1897) and the infamous "battle cruisers" (designed in 1905)is fascinating and at least a partial vindication of the ideas advanced by the American scholar, Jon Sumida. Despite the price, highly recommended.
