Naval Battles of the Twentieth Century
Richard Hough (au). The major naval powers -- America, Britain, Russia, & Japan -- have all played a part in the theater of war at sea over the last 100 years. This book is a detailed account of the bloody & tragic naval battles that took place in the 20th century & of the shifting pattern in the hierarchy of naval powers. In 1905, when this book begins, the first major engagement between ironclad fleets -- the Battle of Tsu-Shima -- took place in the Far East & decided the outcome of the Russo-Japanese war in Japan’s favor. This & the other mighty sea battles of the 20th century are graphically reconstructed for the reader. Victories, defeats, & mutinies at sea, from the sinking of the “Bismarck” to the battles of Midway & Guadalcanal, are all recorded in detail. Illustrations & maps.
