CASTLES OF STEEL

This is a very readable and intriguing history of naval warfare between Britain and Germany in World War I. Robert K. Massie's narrative is as enticing as a good novel; his characterizations are wonderful. He's written this book fairly down the middle, although he does clearly idolize the late Admiral John Jellicoe and disapprove a bit of Jellicoe's rival, Admiral David Beatty.
