It fully covers British naval history, from Alfred the Great to the "Dreadnought" era. Fred T. Jane (1865-1916) is often regarded the father of modern naval journalism. He produced his first reference book inn 1882 at the time of the Royal Navy's bombardment of Alexandria, a collection of his own pen-and-ink sketches informed the public about the ships taking part. Then followed his "All the World's Fighting Ships" in 1897, published since then as an annual reference book covering the world's navies. The book covers the whole sweep of British naval history, from Alfred the Great to the era of the "Dreadnought" battleship. N° de ref. de la librería
