Description

The conquest of the sea is man's greatest triumph. The stages of this triumph from the time when the savage first took advantage of the floating properties of the log, down through all the ages until the present day, are shown in moving pictures by this book. Sea Power and Freedom depicts mainly the career and achievements of the British Navy; because the British Navy is the greatest embodiment of sea power that has ever been attained, and because it has accomplished more than any other agency, to achieve the conquest of the sea. The career and achievements of other navies and of various merchant marines as well are picturesquely shown; and the scenes succeed each other in such rapid but well-ordered fashion, that the story runs uninterrupted and harmonious from the first page to the last. Contents: Introductory Sea Power in the Ancient World "A Place Where Two Seas Meet" The Making of England The Mediterranean in the Middle Ages The Age of Discovery The Mastery to Britain Pride and a Fall Sea Power Saves Europe The Restorer of Paths The Challenge The Valley of Decision The Main Fleets Conclusion Index
