"This book is skilfully condensed from W. S. Hewisons 'This Great Harbour Scapa Flow'.

The position of Scapa Flow, encapsulated as it is by our South Isles, has ensured that Orkney over the centuries has played an infinitely more important part than if the islands had merely been a small group without this m,agnificent sheltered harbour. Peripheral though our situation is today, it was central in the days of our Norse ancestors and during the two World Wars.

Adding greatly to the appreciation of our history, this book tells a dramatic and exciting story unfolding over the centuries from Viking days and before, until the coming of today's nuclear powered warships."

From Foreword by Brigadier S. P. Robertson, MBE, TD, DL.
