By Robert K Massie

(Subject: Naval & Maritime: Ships, Submarines & Other Vessels - General) Castles of Steel is a book about leadership and command, genius and folly driven by some of the most dramatically intriguing personalities in history: Churchill and Jacky Fisher, Jellicoe and Beatty, von Pohl, Scheer, Hipper, and Tirpitz.

There were skirmishes, then battles off the coasts of England and Germany and in the far corners of the world, including the Falklands. The British attempted to force the Dardanelles with battleships - which led to the Gallipoli campaign and the catastrophe at Jutland.
