During World War I, naval warfare occurred on a scale that is not always fully appreciated, and these battles had far-reaching consequences for the combatant nations. In this anthology of primary source documents, the authors of The Battle of Barrosa present Royal Navy dispatches from battles at the Falkland Islands, Heligoland, and Jutland, the largest naval clash of the war and a painful embarrassment for the British fleet. Here too are reports from later skirmishes near Mesopotamia and Russia, as well as accounts of the Zeebrugge and Ostend raids. The book includes 16 pages of black and white photographs and a guide to naval abbreviations.
