"A classic [that] covers superbly a whole era...Engrossing in its glittering gallery of characters."
Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Robert K. Massie has written a richly textured and gripping chronicle of the personal and national rivalries that led to the twentieth century's first great arms race. Massie brings to vivid life, such historical figures as the single-minded Admiral von Tirpitz, the young, ambitious, Winston Churchill, the ruthless, sycophantic Chancellor Bernhard von Bulow, and many others. Their story, and the story of the era, filled with misunderstandings, missed opportunities, and events leading to unintended conclusions, unfolds like a Greek tratedy in his powerful narrative. Intimately human and dramatic, DREADNOUGHT is history at its most riveting.

Review: DreadnoughtUser Review - Ronald Darbisi - Goodreads
A long book, but great insight into the Royal European families and the inrigue of pre-WW1 geo-political intrigues. Of course a great read for the Naval historian as it details the "arms race" of the late 19th century. Read full review
