The thing about British historians that I have found refreshing is that they actually analyze the subject they write about and don't just chronicle events. John Keegan is tops when it comes to history, and gives the reader added value with his analysis. One doesn't have to agree with his findings based on trends and patterns of history he's reported, but one is forced to consider seriously the results he presents.
In "The Price of Admiralty," Keegan recounts the pinacle events of two naval eras--Trafalgar at the height of wooden ships and sail; and Jutland at the peak of iron ships and steam. He then delves into the two transformational events leading to the next two eras of sea warfare--carrier-based air power at Midway; and the advent of effective submarine operations in the Battle of the Atlantic.
Describing the constriction of surface ships between the "upper pincer of the aircraft carrier and the lower of the submarine," Keegan points to the future competition between carriers and subs. Although it is not clear which platform will come to predominate in the future, Keegan makes a strong argument that tomorrow's sea actions will belong to the submarine.
There is rich detail among the pages of "The Price of Admiralty," and, like other Keegan masterpieces ("The Mask of Command," and "The Face of Battle"), this work will stand the test of time.

In history, many find facts and figures that seem to be meant to daunt the average reader into instantaneous boredom. But, with this book, not only is the reader given a grand veiw of formative battles in Naval warfare, but a magnificent stroll through history that promises to keep the reader enthralled in the material. Informing and entertaining at the same time. You are not just reading about the melee amongst the French, Spanish, and British ships off the Spanish coast in the Napoleonic Wars, but you are there, with Nelson as he is picked off by a French sniper in the rigging of the Redoutable. You are in one of the British battlecruisers as they charge in the infamous 'Death Ride' at Jutland, steeming into the jaws of the Devil himself. The reader is left excited, not comatose, drooling for more of what this writer has to offer and what history can teach them, not dry in the mouth and searching for a bed and pillow.

As a military history buff who hasn't read much about naval combat I found this informative and entertaining. There is plenty of background and tactical information and Keegan offers plenty of insight as an accomplished historian, but all of this contributes to a real feel of the battle at sea. You smell the black powder and hear cannonball tear through a wooden frigate, see the burning oily flotsam in the wake of doomed ship and feel the anxiety of a merchant marine in convoy being stalked by a wolfpack.

An interesting foray by the famous military (read "land warfare") historian. An examination better than most, though there are better ones. Keegan's tendency to occassionly utter explicably silly and/ or stupid aphorisms (e.g., "there is no real difference between strategy and tactics" ??--strategic command and control schools would be interested in his rationale for this) is witnessed here by his conclusion that naval surface vessels are a thing of the past as submarines are increasingly rendering them useless. Many professional naval officers raised a ruckus about this when the book first came out, and well they should. The surface/submarine vessel competion is constantly changing due to new, more sophisticated technology. The nation with the most wealth and technological research will have the advantage; in this context, the surface/sub contest is irrelevant. There is no known substitute (yet) for the mobile, floating airfields known as aircraft carriers. I still have to give this an extra star for Keegan's usual great job of writing.

I always loved the Navy; I'm not sure why, but I loved the idea of ships duelling each other. I imagine that if I had one past life, it'd've been on the deck of a Royal Navy battleship, fighting the Franco-Spanish fleet at Trafalgar, or the German High Seas Fleet at Jutland.
I rather enjoyed this book, if you hadn't guessed yet. It's an intelligent analysis of four major fleet actions (counting a convoy as a fleet), discussing how technology changes the constraints and requirements of naval warfare.
I particularly enjoyed the accounts of the first two battles, Trafalgar and Jutland. The latter two were less enjoyable, since I already knew a great deal about Midway, and wasn't that interested in submarines. However, all four accounts are instructive.
If you're at all interested in military history, and especially in naval history, this is a wonderful book for you. Anything that Keegan writes, actually, is good.
