About the Author:

About the Author:
Richard Hough, a well-known naval historian, is author of the acclaimed The Fleet that Had to Die and numerous other books.

From Library Journal:

Distinguished naval historian and biographer Hough has chosen 13 naval battles of the 20th century for analysis and discussion of their place in history. Beginning with Tsu-Shima, 1905, in which the Japanese decisively defeated the Russians, he proceeds to investigate 12 additional engagements, eight of which involve Britain and three the United States; one other is Russo-Japanese. Why the author considers Bogger Bands, River Plate, Bismarck Battle, and North Cape important is not apparent, as these battles had no real effect on the conduct of World Wars I and II. Hough, being English, has every right to emphasize the Royal Navy, but why not include the Coral Sea, Marianas, and Okinawa, all of which had great impact on the outcome of World War II? Clear and concise, this book is suitable for readers who have little or no background in 20th-century naval history but it is not much more. Recommended for libraries wanting a simplified account of recent naval battles. Stanley L. Itkin, Hillside P.L., New Hyde Park, NY
