Dreadnought Era is a phrase that I often use, and one which may appear elsewhere. However, it means what I intend it to mean: roughly the years 1890-1925. Though H.M.S. Dreadnought wasn't completed until 1906 or 1907, and the war her appearance did so much to shape was over by 1918, the preceding and closely following years are worth examining for purposes of understanding more fully the context of the people, ships, technologies, governments, and navies that make the era so compelling.
