Reviews of : Dreadnought by Robert K. Massie PDF Book
Inside this Book – First the bad news – this book is not, strictly speaking, about the topic alluded to by the title. Yes, the development of the British and German navies and effect of that arms race figures very prominently in the book, but it is by no means a book solely about those events. Rather, naval arms race between Great Britain and imperial Germany is used as a red thread binding together a story that starts in the middle of Victorian era and ends with the outbreak of the Great War. The good news is that “Dreadnought” is very possibly one of the top five history books I have read so far, and I have read quite a few of them by now. Massie manages to visualize all the main characters of the period and make them human. Furthermore, he weaves a mesmerizing slideshow of events, that first very slowly, but then with more and more momentum leads to one of humanity’s greatest calamities.
Inside this book –Dreadnought PDF Book by Robert K. Massie – this book has been praised to seventh heaven and back, what can I add ? For those familiar with the facts of European diplomacy and defence in the period ca. 1890-1914, Massie will bring them to life with love. It does not tell the neatly wrapped story of the origins of WWI, nor does it focus exclusively on the naval armaments race between the British and German empires. At over a 1000 pages it is certainly not aimed at the novice history aficionado. Rather, it is a score written for the saga of Clark and MacMillan*. All aspects of the rising antagonism between the Great Powers of Europe make an appearance in the flesh, resurrected from contemporary sources down to entire conversations quoted ad verbatim.
