Verdun, the Somme, Passchendaele. These epic battles are such bywords for the First World War that – Jutland apart – we forget the role played by sea power in the war. Award-winning biographer and naval historian Jim Ring sets out to redress the balance, emphasising how the Royal Navy’s very existence was key to the survival of Britain and to eventual victory in 1918.
