The "Straits Trilogy" by
- Volume I: Superior Force : the
conspiracy behind the escape of Goeben
- 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.
