'This book is essential and enjoyable reading for anyone who wants to understand the nature of the truly global war fought beyond the trenches of the Western Front. Insightful, authoritative and digestible, it opens a window onto the Royal Navy's vital but largely unseen work: from executing the strategic economic blockade which tied a noose around the neck of Kaiser's Germany, to the little known but significant contribution of the Royal Naval Division in the land war. It also shines a penetrating spotlight on the Royal Navy's innovation, people and organisation, as well as the unfolding revolution in its battle space, as submarines and aircraft emerged to transform warfare at sea, and from the sea.' Admiral Sir George Zambellas KCB DSC ADC DL, First Sea Lord and Chief of Naval Staff 'A lively, commendably wide-ranging and judicious evaluation of the Royal Navy's performance in the First World War which effectively refutes the charge that it barely participated in the conflict.' - Michael Duffy, Centre for Maritime Historical Studies, Exeter University
