Before Jutland : the naval war in Northern European waters, August 1914-February 1915 by James Goldrick( )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before Jutland is an effort to understand what happened at sea in northern European waters in 1914-15 when the German High Sea Fleet faced the Grand Fleet in the North Sea and the Russian Fleet in the Baltic. The book is an extensively revised and extended version of the author's 1984 work The King's Ships Were at Sea. It covers the first six months of the First World War because very important things occurred in that time and, despite the loose ends that inevitably remain with four more years of conflict to follow, important things can be said. The focus is primarily on the British, but both the Germans and the Russians are integral to the study because neither the British nor the Germans' North Sea activities can be fairly assessed without giving due weight to the Baltic theatre of operations. This is an operational history, which balances coverage of the major incidents with treatment of the continuum of activity. The intent within the scene setting chapters is not to attempt a complete survey of the events of the previous decade, but to situate each navy within the environment of 1914. Before Jutland includes the battles of Heligoland Bight and the Dogger Bank, as well as the shock of the submarine and its effect on the operations of all the protagonists. In analyzing these events, it seeks to provide the context within which the protagonists were actually working, without the application of excessive hindsight, because in 1914 so much was new and experimental. Observers are inclined to consider what is known as the 'Fisher Era' as a continuum from Admiral Fisher's accession as First Sea Lord in the British Admiralty in 1904; in reality the pace of operational development not only accelerated but became truly multi-lane only after about 1909, just before the great reformer went into his first retirement. The pressures at all levels within navies were therefore intensifying in the years immediately before the outbreak of the war in ways that were not fully understood, nor necessarily recognized. In short, those involved were struggling to learn a new language of naval operations and warfare with an incomplete dictionary and very little grammar. In all, Before Jutland tries to show not only what happened, but how the services evolved to meet the challenges that they faced at the opening of the Great War and whether or not that evolution was successful." --Publisher description

After Jutland : the naval war in Northern European waters, June 1916-November 1918 by James Goldrick( Book )

9 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After Jutland analyses the naval war in Northern European waters following the Battle of Jutland. After Jutland focuses primarily on the Royal Navy as the dominant maritime force, but it also examines the struggles of the beleaguered German and Russian navies as each descended into revolution, as well as the challenges faced by the United States Navy after America entered the war"--

Endless story : destroyer operations in the Great War by H. Taprell Dorling( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although it was first published in 1931, Endless Story remains the only comprehensive account of the services of the Navy's small craft - destroyers, torpedo boats and patrol vessels - during the First World War, and moreover the only one written by an officer personally involved. Even if Dorling did not take part in all the actions he describes, he knew the men who did, and gleaned much of his information from personal contact. As a result the book has both authenticity and authority, but is composed with the all verve of the popular novelist that 'Taffrail' was to become. It was a bestseller in its day, and now enjoys the status of a classic. The emphasis is on the North Sea and Channel, which saw the most famous battles, but Endless Story includes the Gallipoli campaign, warfare in the Mediterranean, ranges as far as the Pacific, where Australian destroyers were actively employed, and even pays tribute to the work of American destroyers in British waters after 1917. It also covers every kind of operation, from U-boat hunting and convoy escort, through minelaying to the Zeebrugge Raid. This reprint will introduce one of the great books on First World War at sea to a new generation of readers. --Provided by publisher

Preserving the knowledge edge : surveillance cooperation and the US-Australia alliance in Asia by Stephan Frühling( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acting alone, Australia couldn't possibly achieve the level of awareness that the evolving strategic environment demands. In alliance, it has the resources to 'fill the gaps' that remain in the US's coverage of the region. This is why the C4ISR relationship with the US in the Indo-Pacific provides such a critical benefit to both members in the alliance. US-Australian C4ISR cooperation will be essential to the success of the US rebalance, but also to Australia's own immediate security in a strategic environment in which more and more countries operate high-technology platforms that once used to be the preserve of Australia and its allies. If Australia were to structure its forces for the alliance, it should make the ability to contribute to US operations in the Indo-Pacific theatre, in peacetime as well as in war, a key priority. Essential to this is the ability of the ADF to be a seamless part of an allied regional C4ISR system that cannot just detect but also target at long distances

Navies in Asia: A Survey of the Development of Ten Navies in South and South East Asia, 1945-1992( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study analyzes the development of the navies of South and South East Asia from the end of the Second World War until 1992. Included within the history are the services of Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, and Indonesia. The factors involved within the development of each navy over the last 47 years are treated, with particular emphasis on strategic, economic, and cultural considerations. The great majority of these navies have undergone considerable expansion in size and improvement in capability within the last 2 decades. This is partly the result of increases in budgets arising from rapid economic development within the region, but it also reflects increasing awareness amongst the countries concerned of the significance of the maritime sphere and of the complex strategic environment arising from the end of the Cold War and the rise of powers such as China, Japan, and India. All but the least developed countries in the region now possess surface-to-surface missiles, modern ocean-going combatants with organic helicopters, and a variety of other weapons and sensors. India, Pakistan, and Indonesia possess modern diesel-electric submarines, while India has experimented with a nuclear submarine. Still other countries are examining proposals to acquire submarine forces. Every nation is improving its maritime surveillance capabilities. The theme within the region is one of improved capabilities to meet ever more demanding requirements. The study analyzes these changes and suggests the likely direction that each service will take, as well as the associated implications for the local security situation
