Throughout I have endeavoured to give as much detailed informati on as possible, but have purposely refrained from any discussion of the reasons or lessons of the various operations. This is where my treatment of the subject differs from that of Vice-Admiral Kirchoff in his 'Seemacht in der Ostsee.' He deals with the greater part of the period more or less from the point of view adopted by Captain Mahan in his works on general naval history, while I have tried to follow more in the footsteps of James, and givefacts without commen." -from the Preface.

Often more objects than operators of world politics, the author seeks to describe how international relations seem to the smaller powers, and to offer some impressions on how these countries devise their foreign policies and apply their diplomacies.” - from the back cover. Born in Pictou, Nova Scotia, Arthur Andrew has served as a diplomat in Canadian missions in Bonn, Berlin, Vienna and Prague, has been ambassador to Israel and high commissioner to Cyprus, and later ambassador to Sweden, during which time he inaugurated Canada's negotiations with the People's Republic of China.
