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.

The fourth volume covers the period from Jellicoe's arrival at the Admiralty to deal with the U-boat menace, then threatening the very outcome of the War, until his dismissal a year later. The introduction of the convoy system to counter the mounting losses of Allied ships finally began to turn the tide in the anti-submarine war and by October 1917 could be proclaimed a success against German peril.
