The five volumes that constitute Arthur Marder's From the Dreadnought to Scapa Flow represent arguably the finest contribution to the literature of naval history since Alfred Mahan, and are still regarded by many as the definitive history of naval events leading up to and incluging the Great War.

This second volume begins with the embarrassing escape of the German ship Goeben, before moving on the the Royal Navy's defeat at Coronel, soon avenged off the Falkland Islands. Marder then turns his attention to the humiliation of the Dardanelles and the submarine menace, before looking in detail at the whole question of British strategy and at how the German High Seas Fleet was to be brought to battle and dealt the crushing blow of which the British public felt so confident.
