War in the Underseas (Classic Reprint)
Sea-Power strangled Germany and saved the world. Even when the Kaiser's legions were riding roughshod over the greater part of Europe its grip was slowly throttling them. Despite the murderous mission of mine and U-boat, it kept the armies of the Allies supplied with men and munitions, and scoured the world for both. When the British Fleet took up its war stations in the summer of 1914 it became the Heart of Things for civilization. It continued to be so when the major portion of the swaggering High Sea Fleet came out to meet Beatty under the white flag in the chilly days of November 1918. It remains so to-day.
The officers and men of the Royal Navy whose march is the Underseas played a perilous and noble part in the Great Conflict.
