This book, originally published in 1919, is a record of the author's period of command of the Royal Navy's largest and most prestigious warships during the first two and a half years of the Great War. The Grand Fleet was created on the day war was declared, and was essentially the Home Fleet by another name, its purpose to establish and maintain a blockade against the German High Seas Fleet - and if the opportunity arose, bring it to battle and annihilate it - at the same time as acting as a deterrent to any notion the enemy might have had to invade the British Isles.
