Synopsis: "A classic [that] covers superbly a whole era...Engrossing in its glittering gallery of characters."
CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Robert K. Massie has written a richly textured and gripping chronicle of the personal and national rivalries that led to the twentieth century's first great arms race. Massie brings to vivid life, such historical figures as the single-minded Admiral von Tirpitz, the young, ambitious, Winston Churchill, the ruthless, sycophantic Chancellor Bernhard von Bulow, and many others. Their story, and the story of the era, filled with misunderstandings, missed opportunities, and events leading to unintended conclusions, unfolds like a Greek tratedy in his powerful narrative. Intimately human and dramatic, DREADNOUGHT is history at its most riveting.
From the Trade Paperback edition.

From the Publisher:
Robert Massie's DREADNOUGHT is one of the really great history reads of the last decade.

As Europe prepared for The Great War, Massie takes us through the great naval arms race. The parallel between the US/Russian nuclear arms race and the British/German arms race is inescapable. What makes this book such a special experience is the depth of character Massie explores of all those who make up the diplomatic and naval history that DREADNOUGHT depicts. The relationship between Queen Victoria and Kaiser Wilhelm is particularly intriguing. Wilhelm's admiration, and even envy, for everything British, obviously played an important part in the events to come.

The portrait of Jackie Fisher, First Sea Lord, a man who brought monumental changes to the British Navy, is worth the price of admission.

As Director of Production at Ballantine, it is such a privilege to be part of the team that participates in bringing to a large audience such a great piece of writing.
