Full Description:

Sumida presents a provocative and authoritative revisionist history of the origins, nature and consequences of the "Dreadnought Revolution" of 1906. Based on intensive and extensive archival research, the book strives to explain vital financial and technical matters which enable readers to observe the complex interplay of fiscal, technical, strategic, and personal factors that shaped the course of British naval decision-making during the critical quarter century that preceded the outbreak of the First World War.

Jon Sumida is the author of Inventing Grand Strategy and Teaching Command: The Classic Works of Alfred Thayer Mahan Reconsidered (1997), and Decoding Clausewitz: A New Approach to On War (2008).  He is professor of history at the University of Maryland, College Park.      

~ Praise for In Defence of Naval Supremacy ~

"In the 1990s, Jon Sumida and Nicholas Lambert reexamined the British naval building program of 1905 to 1914. . . .  Between them, Sumida and Lambert completely overturned the Marder interpretation of British naval policy."  The Journal of Modern History
