About the book:

From inside cover. In The Price of Admiralty, Keegan illuminates the history of naval conflict as it has evolved from Nelson's day until our own , offering brilliant dissection of four landmark sea battles, the Battle of Trafalgar, a conflict of wooden ships of the line; the Battle of Jutland in world War I with its ironclad steamships, the ponderous dreadnoughts; the Battle of Midway in World War II, the last great surface ship battle in which aircraft carriers proved the key players; and the long, arduous Battle of the Atlantic, which saw the submarine emerge as the last major - and ultimately most significant - technological transformation in naval operations. The Price of Admiralty recounts how each new advance in warship technology irrevocably altered the face of naval conflict - the tactics and strategy necessary for offensive and defensive manoeuvres, the role of commanders, and most important, the daily and operational routines of the men aboard.
