Product Description

Publisher: Osprey

Author: Angus Konstam

The launch of HMS Dreadnought in 1906 triggered an arms race between Britain and Germany - a race that would ultimately lead both nations to war. A technological leap forward in naval design, dreadnought-class battleships were unlike anything that had been seen before and brought a new level of firepower to the ocean. It was in May 1916 that the full extend of the change in naval warfare wrought by these giant ships was first seen - at the brutal battle of Jutland. This is the full design and development story of the early Dreadnoughts. (pb)
