BookPick: From the Dreadnought to Scapa Flow

The final volume in the series

The final volume in the series

Arthur J Marder was a distinguished historian of the modern Royal Navy, publishing some fifteen major works on British naval history. He died in 1980.

Despite recent major contributions from more modern historians Marder’s books are justly regarded by many as the definitive history of naval events leading up to and including the Great War and are to my mind still some of the most readable detailed accounts.

Five volumes constitute his monumental “From the Dreadnought to Scapa Flow” :

    Vol. 1 The Road to War 1904-1914
    Vol. 2 To the Eve of Jutland
    Vol. 3 Jutland and After: May to December 1916
    Vol. 4 1917: Year of Crisis
    Vol. 5 Victory and Aftermath: 1918-1919

All five books have been reprinted in paperback and the publisher is to be commended for bringing Marder to a new generation of historians and general readers.

  1. Is Pasha going to be available as a Kindle book in the U.S., as it seems to be in the UK? I have inquired at, but cannot get an answer.

    • Apologies, Hal. It will definitely be available as a Kindle book but there have been a few minor production problems. I have been assured that it will be available very soon, hopefully on the 19th.
