This book focuses on the Royal Navy's response to the rise of the German navy under Hitler within the broad context of the ongoing debate about Britain's policy of appeasement. It combines a narrative of diplomatic events and Whitehall policy-making with the thematic analysis of naval intelligence and war planning. Drawing on the wide range of sources, the author argues that the Admiralty's enthusiasm for naval armaments diplomacy with Nazi Germany was far more rational and more complex than previous studies would suggest.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Joseph Maiolo's first book is the product of imaginative and diligent archival research, intelligent command of recent revisionist scholarship and robust conceptualisation...Maiolo has come up with a different answer by posing fundamentally different questions.' - Jon Tetsuro Sumida, Military History

'Joe Maiolo's work on Anglo-German naval relations in the late 1930s is a readable and worthwhile addition to the recent literature which, for the last 20 years, has attempted to re-evaluate what exactly Britain's interwar foreign and defence policy really was...Without a doubt the book is well worth the purchase price and should be read by anyone studying British strategic defence policy in the 1930s.' - Greg Kennedy, Diplomacy & Statecraft

'...worthwhile reading for anyone interested in naval and related diplomatic affairs during the interwar period.' - Paul G. Halpern, International Journal of Maritime History
