Maritime Series, The Forgotten War of the Royal Navy, Baltic Sea 1918-1920

Considering the importance of the Baltic trade to England, and then Great Britain, from the Middle Ages, it is surprising how badly naval conflict there has been covered in the English language. This book provides a detailed and balanced account of the actions of British warships and aircraft in supporting the fight for freedom from Soviet domination of the Baltic States– Highly Recommended.

DESCRIPTION: Considering the importance of the Baltic trade to 
England, and then Great Britain, from the Middle Ages, it is 
surprising how badly naval conflict there has been covered in the 
English language. This book provides a detailed and balanced account 
of the actions of British warships and aircraft in supporting the 
fight for freedom from Soviet domination of the Baltic States – 
Highly Recommended.

Following the Russian Revolution, Britain sent a number of forces to 
assist the White Russians. Several of these expeditions were 
initially successful but the White Russians failed to capitalize on 
the support and ultimately failed to beat the revolutionaries. In 
1918 the British sent a strong naval force into the Baltic 
specifically to support the White Russian recapture of Petrograd. 
This objective failed to be achieved, but the British force 
supported the Baltic States successfully in their battle to break 
free from Soviet control to become independent free nations.

This book is profusely illustrated with a fine selection of images 
and all ships involved in the conflict are described and illustrated. 
No naval enthusiast can afford not to acquire a copy.

In addition to covering the grossly neglected conflict, that ended 
in the Treaty of Tartu, the book gives unique insight into Russia 
naval vessels and into the use of fast torpedo boats by the British 
with their novel stern launched torpedoes. A fascinating account
