Rezensionen
'Joseph Maiolo's first book is the product of imaginative and diligent archival research, intelligent command of recent revisionist scholarship and robust conceptualisation...Maiolo has come up with a different answer by posing fundamentally different questions.' - Jon Tetsuro Sumida, Military History

'Joe Maiolo's work on Anglo-German naval relations in the late 1930s is a readable and worthwhile addition to the recent literature which, for the last 20 years, has attempted to re-evaluate what exactly Britain's interwar foreign and defence policy really was...Without a doubt the book is well worth the purchase price and should be read by anyone studying British strategic defence policy in the 1930s.' - Greg Kennedy, Diplomacy & Statecraft

'...worthwhile reading for anyone interested in naval and related diplomatic affairs during the interwar period.' - Paul G. Halpern, International Journal of Maritime History
