(Tuesday 26th July, Puerto Portals) – Azzurra, the 52 SUPER SERIES champions of 2015, delivered their best day of this season so far on the Bay of Palma waters where they won the World Championship title and where they built so much of their season-winning points cushion last year.
The publisher is to be commended for bringing back into print a best seller that was last seen 80 years ago. The author served in destroyers during WWI and therefore had a first hand experience of the subject. This is a very important book that describes the technology, tactics and deployment of the smaller warships that served in great numbers and with great distinction. Highly recommended, a must read book about a hugely important part of WWI naval history.
