About this product
- DescriptionIn 1914 Great Britain's navy was the largest and most powerful the world had ever seen - but what was the everyday experience of those who served in it? This fully illustrated book looks at the British sailor's life during the First World War, from the Falkland Islands to the East African coast and the North Sea. Meals in the stokers' mess and the admiral's cabin; the claustrophobic terrors of the engine room or submarine; the long separations from loved ones that were the shared experience of all ranks; the perils faced by Royal Naval Air Service pilots - drawing on previously unpublished materials from the National Maritime Museum collections, this is an authoritative and vivid account of lives lived in quite extraordinary circumstances.
- Author BiographyDr Quintin Colville is Curator of Naval History at the National Maritime Museum, and was lead curator of both its 'Forgotten Fighters: the First World War at Sea' exhibition and its 'Nelson, Navy, Nation' gallery.
