"John Arbuthnot Fisher, 1st Baron Fisher, (1841-1920), British admiral and first sea lord whose reforms between 1904 and 1910 ensured the dominance of the Royal Navy during World War I. During his tenure as first sea lord Fisher executed changes in the organization of the fleet, the administration of dockyards, ship construction, the development of submarines, the conversion of the navyís ships from the use of coal to that of oil, and gunnery development. he retired in January 1910 and remained in retirement until October 1914, when he was recalled as first sea lord to serve under the first lord of the Admiralty, Winston Churchill. Fisherís career ended over his ambivalent attitude toward the Churchill-backed plan for a naval expedition through the Dardanelles, which was intended to land a force and capture the Turkish capital. When the campaign in the Dardanelles faltered, Fisher urged that it be abandoned, and when his views received no support from the British leadership, he resigned on May 15, 1915, in protest against Churchillís conduct of the Admiralty. He then wrote two volumes of memoirs, Memories and Records, published in 1919."

Book Description Doran, New York, 1920. Hard Cover. First Edition. Complete in two volumes, Firsts in green cloth. Lord Fisher, Admiral of the Fleet, was an egotist with a very sour disposition. These memoirs are very combative and not well organized, but may have some good information on the wars of the period. Vol. 1, 'Memories', is good plus, having water damage along the bottom edge of both the front board and the pages up to p. 55. In a very tattered and torn fair dj with the flaps separated. Vol. 2, 'Records', is vg-, with lines of smoke damage at top and bottom of the front board; in a fair dj with a good deal of chipping, smoke damage on front panel and spine. Both books have very bright title pieces, thanks to the djs. Seller Inventory # 12022
