Description

"A classic [that] covers superbly a whole era...Engrossing in its glittering gallery of characters." CHICAGO SUN-TIMES Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Robert K. Massie has written a richly textured and gripping chronicle of the personal and national rivalries that led to the twentieth century's first great arms race. Massie brings to vivid life, such historical figures as the single-minded Admiral von Tirpitz, the young, ambitious, Winston Churchill, the ruthless, sycophantic Chancellor Bernhard von Bulow, and many others. Their story, and the story of the era, filled with misunderstandings, missed opportunities, and events leading to unintended conclusions, unfolds like a Greek tratedy in his powerful narrative. Intimately human and dramatic, DREADNOUGHT is history at its most riveting. The author of the international bestseller Nicholas and Alexandra and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Peter the Great has written a richly textured and gripping chonicle of the personal and national rivalries that led to the 20th century's first great arms race. Massie brings to life glittering figures from Winston Churchill to Sir Edward Grey to Jacky Fisher, the eccentric admiral who brought forth the first true battleship, H.M.S. Dreadnought. Two 16-page inserts.
