    "Interesting read"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a very interesting read, and a great introduction to naval warfare in WW1. You really see the difficulties faced by the navies of both sides, with ships that only have limited range, and very few sources of intelligence to find out where the enemy is. There are interesting details on life on board, and the problems and processes of actually fighting the ship. It is hard to follow some of the action without the maps (which are supplied as a pdf, although if, like me, you listen while driving then consulting them isn't really possible) but they are well enough described that this isn't a huge problem, and you get the general idea.

    My only gripe would be the narrator; I like his voice, but he is let down by some of his pronounciations. In particular, his version of what 'Gneisenau' should sound like was initially very grating.

    "Now what was the name of that ship again?"
    Would you listen to The Battle of the Falkland Islands again? Why?

    Yes, it is a fascinating and emotional story; bravery mixed with tragedy for both sides


    Would you be willing to try another one of Felbrigg Napoleon Herriot’s performances?

    Yes but only if he brushes up on his pronunciation of non-English words, especially ship names!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes
