Rolf Hobson is Senior Researcher at the Norwegian Institute of Defence Studies in Oslo. In 1999 he received a prize for scholarly merit from the Royal Norwegian Society of Science and Letters.Review:
'...a thorough analysis of the development of German naval thought between 1875 and 1914.'
Terrell D. Gottschall, International Journal of Maritime History.
'Hobson analyzes the rise of Imperial German naval power within the context of the changes in international relations, industrial development, and naval strategy in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This thoroughly researched, well-organized volume adds much to the existing literature on Admiral Alfred von Tirpitz and Germany's quest for sea power...Hobson has produced a welcome addition to the literature on the Imperial German navy. While specialists will find this work especially appealing, the even-handed discussion of the historiography makes it accessible to a broader audience of scholars and students seeking an introduction to the field.'
Lawrence Sondhaus, Central European History, Vol. 37.
