In 1914 it was fully understood by Germany’s higher naval and military authorities that, despite having acquired the largest empire in the world, the civilian population of the British Isles had not experienced war at first hand since the Civil Wars of the mid-17th Century, save for brief and mainly local hostilities resulting from the Jacobite risings, an abortive French.

To the memory of Arthur Marder. Ten years later Germany could put to sea a fleet of twenty-one dreadnought battleships and battle-cruisers in the greatest naval battle in the war: a war which the dreadnought and the competition she intensified, had in large measure brought about. Fifteen years earlier Germany had possessed a negligible navy of small coast-defence vessels, and though the Germans were powerful on land, the sea was not an element that had previously inspired their interest or ambition.

The North Sea was the main theater of the war for surface action. When Bulgaria entered World War I in 1915, its navy consisted mainly of a French-built torpedo gunboat called Nadezhda and six torpedo boats. It mainly engaged in mine warfare actions in the Black Sea against the Russian Black Sea Fleet and allowed the Germans to station two U-boats at Varna, one of which came under Bulgarian control in 1916 as Podvodnik No. 18. Russian mines sank one Bulgarian torpedo boat and damaged one more during the wa. .

Comments to eBook North Sea Battleground: The War at Sea 1914-1918

WW1 and especially its naval side is a great interest of mine, so naturally I ordered this book from Amazon as soon as it was available for preorder. It arrived yesterday and unfortunately it proved a great disappointment. The book contains nothing new, nor any original research or facts based on new sources. It is simply a rehash of very basic facts on the war at sea in the North Sea, and on a pretty basic level. The few maps are very basic and seems pulled from other works, there are no orders of battle, no ship diagrams or data.

The book is also typeset in a large font, and that together with the simplistic phrasing and basic style of writing makes it read like a childrens book on WW1 naval warfare. If you are completely new to WW1 and want to read a book on its naval side in the North Sea as seen from the British perspective, this might be a book for you, especially if you happen to be 12 years old. Otherwise I would recommend you to stay away.

Well, I must say that I was disappointed in this book. It seemed like the author spent more time than he should have on background stuff, and less on the action. While I am aware that the title includes the words "North Sea", the true story of WW1 at sea included the epic run of Admiral Von Spee in the Pacific, as well as the submarine war in the Atlantic. As far as I could tell there was not much of either in this book. I did wonder why I paid so little for it,.....now I know

This book is in large type with simple, limited subject coverage. This does not mean it is a poor text just not at all what is described. This is not a survey of the North sea Battles and campaigns for the adult reader. It is a well written middle or highschool students book. If considered as a text for a book report or background study for a school history class it is well written and organized. But by no way by no strech can it be called and adults book even for the beginner. If you are looking for a gift or a cliff notes type book for a student it is great. you are an adult, don't buy it.

This short volume concentrates on WW 1 North Sea action only. It describes the High Seas fleet bombardments of the English coast in more detail than I have read before. It is a well written book.
