From early ironclad battleships to the nuclear-powered submarines of today, twentieth-century naval warfare has been marked by huge technological advances. However, Ronald Spector's gripping history shows that, above all, it is the men inside these armoured giants who created victory or defeat.
What was it like to serve in a submarine in the Atlantic, to be fired at by shells in the Battle of Jutland or raided by Kamikaze pilots in the Second World War? 'At War At Sea' tells the story of the naval conflicts that defined the modern age, through the eyes of the sailors who fought in them - from the epic Battle of Tsushima in 1905 to the sophisticated missile engagements off the Persian Gulf and beyond.
