Celebrate a century of Britain's Royal Navy with this fascinating history--complete with 15 items of removable facsimile memorabilia!
Without the Royal Navy, Britain might have lost two world wars, and even ceased to exist. This book salutes the service's incredible achievements over the last 100 years, and examines how it protected Britain's shores and wider interests. Here are a century of operations, from the First World War's northern patrol lifelines in the Atlantic, Arctic, and Mediterranean; to the increasingly sophisticated amphibious operations carried out in World War Two; to the Falklands War and the Royal Navy's role fighting piracy and handling humanitarian crises. This visually stunning volume is complemented by 15 loose facsimile documents from the prestigious National Museum of the Royal Navy, including letters, diary entries, war reports, and maps.
