This book recounts the history of the first destroyers of the Royal Navy, which revolutionized the way war was fought at sea with new armaments and a great improvement on earlier designs. Moreover, between 1892, when the first destroyers were laid down, and 1918, destroyers evolved radically from 27-knot, 250-ton ships into 35-knot, 1,530-ton ships. All these ships were involved in some form during World War I; the smaller, original destroyers in an auxiliary support role and the newer, larger destroyers at some of the greatest sea battles of the war. This account highlights the role the destroyers played in the North Sea during the crucial battles to control the Heliogoland Bight, as well as the major fleet action at the battle of Jutland in 1916. Complete with a detailed description of the technical evolution of each class of destroyer from the 27-knotters to the Tribal and Marksman classes, Jim Crossley offers a complete overview of the vessels that helped to maintain Britain's naval supremacy.

A chronological listing of all British naval vessels lost through accident or enemy action from 1860 to the end of the First World War, with full descriptions of the circumstances. A sequel to David Hepper's highly valuable British Warship Losses in the Age of Sail, which is now the standard reference on the subject, this volume carries the coverage forward from the first ironclad to the end of the First World War. All losses down to the smallest vessels are included, whether caused by accident, stress of weather or enemy action, and full details of the circumstances are given, based on courts of enquiry, senior officers' reports and other primary source material. Many incidents in this volume have never previously been studied in any depth, including scores of sinkings during the First World War, so the book represents a real and substantial contribution to the subject. But it is more than a bald recitation of facts, with highly readable entries containing fascinating and little-known details. There is also a representative selection of photographs showing the variety of fates suffered by warships in this era. The organization is basically chronological, but there are full indexes by ship name, by commanding officer and by ship type, making thematic research that much easier. In summary, the book is an important new source of reference for the naval history of this period.

This volume needs to be read in conjunction with NRS Volume 115 Policy and Operations in the Mediterranean, 1912-1914. The Mediterranean was a secondary theatre for the Royal Navy and the ships tended to be ageing and retired from fleet duty. France assumed the major responsibility, along with Italy but the Royal Navy retained a strong presence and performed vital functions. Most operations have attracted less attention than Jutland, the Falklands or the Battle of the Atlantic but Gibraltar and Malta remained important bases, the Suez Canal had to be defended, there was a mine barrage in the Otranto Straits, and the Navy supported the Army at the Dardanelles, Salonika and in the Middle East, while there was latterly much convoy work. The sources include the main war history collection of Admiralty papers (The National Archive: PRO ADM 137) and the private papers of senior commanders such as Howard Kelly, Limpus and de Robeck.

The five volumes that constitute Arthur Marder's From the Dreadnought to Scapa Flow represented arguably the finest contribution to the literature of naval history since Alfred Mahan. A J P Taylor wrote that 'his naval history has a unique fascination. To unrivalled mastery of sources he adds a gift of simple narrative . . . He is beyond praise, as he is beyond cavil.' The five volumes were subtitled The Royal Navy in the Fisher Era, 1904–1919 and they are still, despite recent major contributions from Robert Massie and Andrew Gordan, regarded by many as the definitive history of naval events leading up to and including the Great War. This last volume describes the Royal Navy's final triumph. The convoy system brought rewards and the US Navy arrived in European waters. The striking 1918 raid on Zeebrugge was a big morale booster, and in November 1918 Beatty received the surrender of the German High Seas Fleet. In June the following year the Germand scuttled their fleet at Scapa Flow and so came to an end a major era in naval history. A new introduction by Barry Gough, the distinguished Canadian maritime and naval historian, assesses the importance of Marder's work and anchors it firmly amongst the great naval narrative histories of this era. This new paperback edition will bring a truly great work to a new generation of historians and general readers.
