Verdun, the Somme, Tannenberg and Passchendaele. These epics of destruction and futility are such bywords for the World War I that—Jutland apart—we forget the role played by sea power in the war to end war. The great global conflict is too often narrowed to the fields of Flanders and the plains of Picardy. Now, award-winning biographer and naval historian Jim Ring has revisited the story to redress the balance. He emphasizes how Great Britain, “the great Amphibian” in Churchill's words, was able to move its army anywhere in the world.
