    In a work of extraordinary narrative power, filled with brilliant personalities and vivid scenes of dramatic action, Robert K. Massie, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Peter the Great, Nicholas and Alexandra, and Dreadnought, elevates to its proper historical importance the role of sea power in the winning of the Great War.

    Matt says: "Stick With It!"
    "Highly opinionated history of WW1."

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was not.
    From the book this long, I did expect the analysis of all ships, including comparative analysis of german to british ones(with numbers!). details of their built, armor, engineering decisons . Why there were different types of ships.

    Instead, into 2 hours of this book I get the usual non informative british view of how ww1 started and why germans were bad guys.
    This includes even churchill quotes. Sorry, not everybody loves churchill.

    Unless you are fan of british politics, buy something else.

    This one can be probably a good illustration of how british establishment sees WW1. nothing else.


    What could Robert K. Massie have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not a thing
