Minor pencil marginalia, hinges beginning to weaken. 1919 Hard Cover. x, [2], 377, [3]; 428 pp. 8vo. The memoirs of the German naval commander who expanded Germany's naval force in an attempt to challenge the British Royal Navy (it failed: the most successful clash was the stalemated Battle of Jutland). Von Tirpitz did aid in Germany's development of torpedoes and subsequent transition from traditional naval strategy to submarine warfare, though his overarching ambition of Germany being globally recognized as world power through naval strength was never realized.
