    By focusing upon management of the Royal Navy as well as its fighting traditions this is a valuable and unique book. I enjoyed it thoroughly and learned something new while doing so.

    I went to Kindle e-books military fiction and found this book. Once I startd it I realised that it was not fiction at all in fact it is one of the most detailed and reserached books I have read. The use of the ten men the author covers explains much on how the Royal Navy developed from a quickly put togeather group of men and ships facing the Spanish Armada into the formidable force it became by the end of the 19th century. As a fan of C.S.Forester I can really now understand what he was saying in the Hornblower series as it too follows the changes that took place within the fleet. The author does not paint these Admirals as perfect but rather shows their strengths and weaknesses and how they often had to fight not only the enemy but their politicans at home. Since WWII is what I am most interested in I found his coverage of Admiral Cunningham outstanding. In that context the author shows that Winston Churchill was not as great a leader as he has painted himself. The author uses extensive footnotes to support his position throughout the book for each Admiral he covers. I really enjoyed the book and recommed it to anyone realy interested in the Royal Navy.

    It's a dry read. You really need to be committed enthusiast to enjoy this book.

    10 British admirals are looked at in great detail. Starting in the 1500's and progressing all the way to World War II. If you are looking for information, this is the book.

    This was a christmas gift for my brother who loves history and battleships. He really enjoyed it. He said that it was well written and had several details that were of great interest to him. This would be a good read for any navel history buff.
