Review: The Price of Admiralty: The Evolution of Naval Warfare from Trafalgar to Midway

User Review  - Pete - Goodreads

A bit slow in his overly-detailed way through Trafalgar. Pace picks up tremendously from Jutland and beyond. Basically "The Face of Battle" on the sea. If you liked one, you will like the other. Read full review
