    From the Spanish Armada to the modern age of aircraft carriers, history is littered with horribly bad military ideas on the open seas. Whether a result of lack of planning, miscalculations, a leader's ego, spy infiltration, or just a really stupid idea in the first place, each military defeat is fascinating to dissect.

    Among the catastrophic missteps:

    - The ANZAC disaster at Gallipoli

    - Germany's failed WWII campaign in the North Atlantic

    - Kennedy's quarantine of Cuba

    - The French defeat of the British at the Battle of the Chesapeake

    - The rise of the American Navy during the Barbary Wars

    - The short life and death of Imperial Japan's Navy

    - The sinking of the Bismarck, Nazi megaship

    - Admiral Nelson's greatest hits: The Nile and Trafalgar

    With over 35 chapters of incredible military disasters, both famous (infamous) and obscure, HOW TO LOSE A WAR AT SEA is full of trivia, history, and fascinating looks at the world's greatest seafaring military defeats.
