Genuine FIRST EDITION. A proud and defiant monument to Germany's efforts in the naval battle of the Great War.

"We are victors and vanquished at one and the same time, and in depicting our success the difficult problem confronts us of not forgetting that our strength did not last out to the end."

Admiral Scheer took command of the German High Seas Fleet in 1916. He championed unrestricted submarine warfare as the key to winning, maintaining that it was no worse than the British blockade against Germany. Scheer's belief in aggressive surface fleet actions led him to the Battle of Jutland, the largest naval engagement in World War One and still one of the biggest in history.

Scheer's preface concludes: 'The remembrance of the famous deeds which were accomplished will henceforth preserve over the grave of the German Fleet the hope that our race will succeed in creating for itself a position among the nations worthy of the German people.'

pp. xiv, 376 Portrait and 28 plans. (Some foxing due to age.) #0120 A DESIRABLE Naval Warfare item.
