The Influence of Seapower on History - Audible Book

Moving on with the Audible reads my next book is "The Influence of Seapower" (see below, a book I have heard so much about, but as yet not have had the time or opportunity to read - or in this case listen to): 

Interesting so far, a book of over 132 years old, but in many ways still relevant for understanding history - but a book also accused of propelling the world into World War One, through its affect on the Kaiser.

It’s a long time since I read it (probably 30 years) but it had a profound influence in my thinking about naval warfare.

All the best,

It is interesting as it goes far back to the Anglo-Dutch-French Wars of the 17th Century which are fascinating! Currently a third of the way through listening to it
