Pressestimmen"Follows a straightforward chronological timeline (indeed, the book includes an actual timeline in its front matter), with the exception of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, where military and naval developments are covered in parallel chapters. The chapters for each era, in turn, are organized thematically.... a useful overview of the subject, and the select bibliography suggests further readings over a wide range of accessibility." - H-War
