  • A Revolution in Naval Affairs? Technology, Strategy and British Naval Policy in the ‘

    Hi

    Hope this is of some interest, especially for those with a naval bent such as me:-

    This article examines the applicability of the concept of ‘revolutions’ in warfare to the study of pre-First World War British naval history. It argues that by attaching an overt degree of importance to the role of technological change in affecting transformations in contemporary views of war-fighting, historians have overlooked many aspects of Admiralty policy that can be better understood in terms of continuity, rather than ‘revolution’.
