While the overriding image of the First World War is of the bloody stalemate on the Western Front, the overall shape of the war arose out of its maritime character. It was essentially a struggle about access to worldwide resources, most clearly seen in Germany's desperate attempts to counter the American industrial threat, which ultimately drew the United States into the war. This radical new book concentrates on the way in which each side tried to use or deny the sea to the other, and in so doing describes rapid wartime changes not only in ship and weapons technology but also in the way naval warfare was envisaged and fought. Melding strategic, technical, and tactical aspects, Friedman approaches the First World War from a fresh perspective and demonstrates how its perceived lessons dominated the way navies prepared for the Second World War.

Review:

"This is an immensely valuable work for anyone interested in the Great War at sea or in naval warfare in general." -The NYMAS Review

"Dr. Friedman's research credentials are impeccable, and the huge amount of factual detail he has unearthed will be sure to delight many. ...there is nothing comparable in either depth or scope out there, and for this reason, if no other, this book is likely to become a standard work on the naval aspects of the Great War."--Naval War College Review

Recipient of the John Lyman Book Award in the category of Naval and Maritime Science and Technology.

"Fighting the Great War at Sea...is not a quick read--it is a heavyweight and deserving of proper attention--but for anyone looking for a serious and in-depth account, lavishly illustrated and copiously referenced, it may well be indispensable."--Warships International Fleet Review
