The years since 1982, have seen an intensified study of naval theory and history, as well as rapid advances in shipping and anti-shipping technology. Research into the origins of naval theory has produced this study of Sir John Knox Laughton (1830-1915), who, in a single lifetime, converted naval history from little more than a romantic narrative into a rigorous scientific discipline.Not so much a biography as a study of the evolution of naval thought in the crucial decades leading to the First World War, this book charts the intellectual revolution that took place at the same time as the technological revolution carried out by the world's major navies in the late 19th century.

For more than half a century the big gun was the arbiter of naval power, but it was useless if it could not hit the target fast and hard enough to prevent the enemy doing the same. Because the naval gun platform was itself in motion, finding a 'firing solution' was a significant problem made all the more difficult when gun sizes increased and fighting ranges lengthened and seemingly minor issues like wind velocity had to be factored in. To speed up the process and eliminate human error, navies sought a reliable mechanical calculation. This heavily illustrated book outlines for the first time in layman's terms the complex subject of fire-control, as it dominated battleship and cruiser design from before World War I to the end of the dreadnought era. Covering the directors, range-finders, and electro-mechanical computers invented to solve the problems, America's leading naval analyst explains not only how the technology shaped (and was shaped by) the tactics involved, but analyses their effectiveness in battle. His examination of the controversy surrounding Jutland and the relative merits of competing fire-control systems draws conclusions that will surprise many readers. He also reassesses many other major gun actions, such as the battles between the Royal Navy and the Bismarck and the US Navy actions in the Solomons and at Surigao Strait. All major navies are covered, and the story concludes at the end of World War II with the impact of radar. This is a book that everyone with a more than passing interest in twentieth-century warships will want to read, and nobody professionally involved with naval history can afford to miss.

El sábado 16 de diciembre de 1944 Hitler inició su “última jugada” en los bosques nevados de las Ardenas. Su intención era realizar un ataque por sorpresa que, avanzando hacia Amberes, dividiese los ejércitos aliados e hiciese posible infligirles una severa derrota: un nuevo Dunquerque que cambiase el curso de una guerra que había llegado a una situación angustiosa, con los ejércitos soviéticos avanzando en suelo alemán. El ataque, en el que intervendrían dos ejércitos blindados, se complementaba con la actuación en la retaguardia de un comando de soldados alemanes, con uniformes y vehículos norteamericanos. Como hiciera en Stalingrado, Beevor consigue aquí combinar una visión épica de la que fue la mayor batalla de la guerra en el frente occidental –una batalla librada en condiciones extremas, que llegó a implicar a un millón de hombres y en la que los dos bandos cometieron crímenes brutales- con una aproximación directa al heroísmo, el miedo y el sufrimiento de los seres humanos.
