Using four warship-centered examples, this book shows how naval battles are won or lost-and how technological advantage is rarely as decisive in defeat or victory as is often claimed.

  • Focuses on four ship-centered battle narratives: the battle of Trafalgar, the battle of Jutland, the sinking of the Prince of Wales and Repulse, and the Falklands War
  • Identifies 11 perspectives that explain victory and defeat in naval operations
  • Provides a history-based survey of successful naval operations while highlighting the nature of naval operations in the 21st century
  • Presents information written in a clear, reader-friendly style without compromising on its scholarly standards of content and accuracy
  • Offers fascinating reading for naval college students, general audiences who enjoy naval history, and naval historians alike
