Beginning in the late 19th century, Germany and Great Britain conducted a naval arms race that would ultimately come to a head in World War I. Bringing this immense conflict down to the human scale, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Peter the Great offers portraits of a crowd of glittery figures: the single-minded Admiral von Tirpitz; the young, ambitious Winston Churchill; the ruthless, sycophantic Chancellor Bernhard von Bülow; Britain's greatest 20th-century foreign secretary, Sir Edward Grey; and Jacky Fisher, the eccentric admiral who revolutionized the British navy and brought forth the first true battleship, the H.M.S. Dreadnought.
