The Battle of Midway. Pearl Harbor. Tsushima. The Dardanelles. The twentieth century saw some of the most devastating and world-changing sea battles ever known. Empires fell, new governments arose, and day-to-day life was changed forever. In Maritime Dominion, Peter Padfield examines the terrible wars of the last century, reaching controversial and sometimes startling conclusions.

Padfield demonstrates how important maritime strength remained for the security and stability of the western world. Maritime Dominion richly illustrates the importance of naval primacy over the past 150 years and brings to life the sea battles that changed modern history.



"Ambitious, hugely enjoyable...this lucid, passionately argued and beautifully written history ranks among the fi nest of recent times." -Sunday Times

"The best naval historian of his generation." --John Keegan, author of A History of Warfare
