Author(s): Andrew D. Lambert


The true story of how Britain's maritime power helped gain this country unparalleled dominance of the world's economy, "Admirals" celebrates the rare talents of the men who shaped the most successful fighting force in world history. Told through the lives and battles of eleven of our most remarkable admirals, Andrew Lambert's book stretches from the Armada to the Second World War, culminating with the spirit which led Andrew Browne Cunningham famously to declare, when the army feared he would lose too many ships, 'it takes three years to build a ship; it takes three centuries to build a tradition.'
