The five volumes that constitute Arthur Marder's From the Dreadnought to Scapa Flow represented arguably the finest contribution to the literature of naval history since Alfred Mahan. A J P Taylor wrote that 'his naval history has a unique fascination. To unrivalled mastery of sources he adds a gift of simple narrative . . . He is beyond praise, as he is beyond cavil.' The five volumes were subtitled The Royal Navy in the Fisher Era, 1904–1919 and they are still, despite recent major contributions from Robert Massie and Andrew Gordan, regarded by many as the definitive history of naval events leading up to and including the Great War. This last volume describes the Royal Navy's final triumph. The convoy system brought rewards and the US Navy arrived in European waters. The striking 1918 raid on Zeebrugge was a big morale booster, and in November 1918 Beatty received the surrender of the German High Seas Fleet. In June the following year the Germand scuttled their fleet at Scapa Flow and so came to an end a major era in naval history. A new introduction by Barry Gough, the distinguished Canadian maritime and naval historian, assesses the importance of Marder's work and anchors it firmly amongst the great naval narrative histories of this era. This new paperback edition will bring a truly great work to a new generation of historians and general readers.

The two world wars were amongst the most convulsive events in human history. Millions of people died, many millions more had their lives transformed, and the nature of warfare itself was changed forever. The Era of World Wars 1914-45 – volume six in the Encyclopedia of Warfare Series – charts the cataclysmic world wars of the twentieth century. This is a chronological guide to conflict on every continent, including the far-reaching effects on Africa, China and the Middle East, as well as the more familiar battlegrounds such as Verdun and the Somme in 1916, Stalingrad in 1942, and Normandy in 1944. This volume tells the story of the millions involved in the world wars and surrounding conflicts. Featuring full colour maps illustrating the formations and strategies used, plus narrative descriptions of the circumstances behind each battle, this is a comprehensive guide to the two world wars and the other conflicts of the era. The Encyclopedia of Warfare Series is an authoritative compendium of five millennia of conflict, from the ancient world to the Arab Spring. Written in a style accessible to both the student and the general enthusiast, it reflects the latest thinking among military historians and will prove to be an indispensible reference guide.
