THIS book, like its forerunner, " Sea Fights of the Great War," is again the .work of many hands. Naval friends have contributed vital details, giving life and colour to what might otherwise have proved a dull recital of facts.
Of the three collaborators whose names appear upon the title-page, one of them, Mr. W. D. Kirkpatrick, served in varying capacities all through the war. His work was highly technical, and he has been able to give many accounts of the inner working of the great fighting ships, with glimpses of the daily life of our gallant sailors. The second, Mr. W. L. Wyllie, R.A., cruised in all types of craft of the Royal Navy, from the largest and newest of the super-Dreadnoughts and battle-cruisers to submarines, "Q" ships and motor launches. He has been chiefly concerned with the portrayal of the war at sea. His pictures have been in almost every case painted on the spot from the actual ships, the guns being specially trained and elevated to the correct position. The third, Mr. Charles Owen, has devoted all his attention to sorting out the fragmentary scraps of information, putting them into proper order, and giving a smoothness to the narrative.
