Great Naval Race: Anglo-German Naval Rivalry, 1900-1914,
Hart-Davis McGibbon, 1974
A favourite on this topic it is concise but enthusiastically written, capturing the passion and urgency of these events with a Kiplingesque energy. While clearly lionising Fisher and Edward VII at the expense of Tirpitz and the Kaiser, not to mention Charles Bereford, it is hard not to argue that the court of history has dealt the 'villians' of this piece an equally ignoble verdict.
