This book will appeal to those interested in naval warfare in general and in particular the development of the British fleet at the turn of the 20th Century.
Essentially presented in note form, A Fleet in Being is not an easy read and the language used will be quite unfamiliar to many readers, both because of the specialist ship related terms used and the slang and coloquialisms of the sailors themselves. If you can get past that, this is a rich insight into the workings of a ship and the relations between the men aboard, other ships and the sea.
