The Straits Trilogy : Superior Force, Straits, The Millstone by Geoffrey Miller

The "Straits Trilogy" by Geoffrey Miller

  • Volume I: Superior Force : the conspiracy behind the escape of Goeben and Breslau
  • Volume II: Straits : British Policy towards the Ottoman Empire and the Origins of the Dardanelles Campaign
  • Volume III: The Millstone : British Naval Policy in the Mediterranean, 1900-1914, the Commitment to France and British Intervention in the War

These books provide a comprehensive account of British naval and diplomatic policy in the two decades prior to the Great War, focusing in particular on the escape of the German ships Goeben and Breslau [Superior Force], the origins of the Dardanelles Campaign [Straits], and the political and diplomatic imperatives behind the British decision to enter the war in August 1914 [The Millstone].

 

Each volume of the "Straits" trilogy is designed to stand on its own; together, however, they represent the fullest account yet published of the escape of Goeben and Breslau, the Royal Navy in the Mediterranean and British policy towards the Ottoman Empire for the period 1900-15. Please note that Superior Force is in a larger format.
