The Brassey's Book of Naval Blunders
Regan (a military historian with no university or government affiliation) offers a catalog of naval incompetence from Roman times to the Gulf War. With approximately 50 illustrations, the book provides a humorous look at the follies, misjudgments, and bad luck of captains, fleet commanders, strategic planners, and ship designers. It also analyzes the errors of key naval battles and campaigns like Drepana, Navarino, Manila Bay, Midway and the Medway, the Dardanelles, Coronel, Dogger Bank, and Leyte Gulf.
