Naval Battles of the 20th Century spans 1905 through World War II, covering 14 of the most crucial battles of modern times. Britain, the United States, Japan and Russia have all played major roles in the struggle for the sea. This detailed book puts a century's worth of naval battles in context. It begins with the Battle of Tsu-Shima, where the Japanese successfully challenged Britain's 100-year tenure as naval ruler of the world. It ends 50 years later, when America regained bragging rights for the Allies, decimating the Japanese at the Battle of the Philippines, Fluidly written, Naval Battles of the 20th Century makes these complex engagements easy to follow. You'll gain a whole new perspective on some of history's most crucial battles
