    You can’t beat the price on this, Mr. Kung, at zero dollars and zero cents. Here’s a copy of it at Gutenberg as an easy way to get it into your book reader of choice.

      I already have a copy. Incidentally, one of its biggest fans at the time was Kaiser Wilhelm II, which is why he supported Tirpitz’s naval construction program.

        I heard about this book about forty years ago and kept running into it in my reading history over the years. Only recently, with the use of a Kindle, did I finally get a copy.

        There is no doubt it had a major influence on modern naval strategy from the 1890’s until the present, although I understand it is less important today than previously.
