Pulitzer Prize winning author Robert K. Massie has written a richly textured and gripping chronicle of the personal and national rivalries that led to the 20th century's first great arms race. Day by day, he describes Britain's slow awakening to the ominous threat arising across the North Sea, the gradual shift in British diplomacy as Splendid Isolation was abandoned and Britain reached out to her two historic antagonists, Russia and France. Their fear was spurred by the expanding German fleet. The contact to Russia and France ripened into the Triple Entente that became the anti-German alliance in the First World War.
