REVIEW OF BOOKS
THE FLIGHT OF THE "GOEBEN" AND "BRESLAU," by Admiral Sir Berkely Milne, Bart., G. C. V. O., K. C. B. London. Eveleigh Nash Co., Ltd., 1921.
Early in the war referring to the conference in Paris between Lord Kitchener and General French, M. Millerand said, "il ne font pas encombrer nos generaux de suggestions." That the British Admiralty held a contrary opinion is apparent in all, the naval campaigns of the war beginning with the Goeben affair—where to use Sir Julian Corbett's expression the admirals were "bewildered" by instructions from London. No one can read Admiral Milne's presentation of the* case without being impressed with the fact that the Admiralty and not the commander-in-chief directed the Goeben campaign, which had such unhappy results, but for which the admiral was responsible.
