Something else to consider in regard to Germany's naval rebuilding between the wars: through the efforts of Tirpitz, the Kaiser, the Navy League and others over twenty-some years, a genuine German nav ...

Regarding "Sultan Osman I," the Brazilian ideal, when that country was taking designs for what was then "Rio de Janeiro," was to have this vessel with 14" guns, which would have required a larger-disp ...

I certainly agree re. Fisher's leadership in pulling back warships into home waters with the German threat in mind, unpopular as this was with some at the time, especially the cutting back of the Medi ...

I think that Burr makes a strong argument for Fisher's strategic and tactical conceptions of the battlecruiser in general, and the "large light cruisers" in particular. However, I wonder whether Fishe ...

I really feel like a basic mistake was made by Churchill, Battenberg, et al in the reinforcements sent out, both "Canopus" and "Defence." I don't believe that either, in company with Cradock's existin ...

As the subject here is the usefulness of pre-dreadnoughts, this might be the place to mention perhaps the most famous relevant hypothetical, namely the usefulness (or not) of H.M.S. Canopus at Coronel ...

Harley, I'll mention two items which struck me from "Rules of the Game:"
two lists. One is that list of "Certain Affiliations," including the masonic memberships. The other is that typical dinner se ...

I suspect you're right regarding Gordon's use of the Pollen/Dreyer controversy. He's not going into the technological question in-depth; this is one incident on a vast canvass he's painting, and accep ...

In reading along through "Rules of the Game" I happened upon the couple of pages Gordon devotes to the relative merits and liabilities of the Dreyer and Pollen systems. Having read Brooks and become f ...

How can you have a dreadnought if you don't even have a navy? Which brings me to this puzzler. Which European state, possessing a respectable coastline, possessed no navy during the timeframe of this ...
