The era of modern naval warfare began with the Spanish-American War in 1898, one of the first occasions in which high-speed warships, precision artillery and high-explosive shell were tested in actual combat. To describe the naval battles which have taken place since that date, William Honan has collected a broad anthology of naval writing, paying particular attention to the circumstances and psychology leading up to each event. Emminent historians, journalists and writers contribute vivd essays that bring life to the dramatic real-life epics which have marked the rise and fall of empires from the late nineteenth century to the Faklands conflict of 1982.
