BeschreibungThe twentieth century was preeminently an age of warring states and collapsing empires. Industrialism brought not peace but the sword. And the tip of that sword was sea power. This volume recalls the early twentieth-century world of emerging, predatory industrial nations engaging in the last major scramble for global markets and empire.
