From the cover: Of all the Navies which took part in the First World War, the Imperial and Royal Navy of Austria-Hungary is perhaps the least known. Yet the ships of the Austrian Navy exercised a decisive influence on the plans of the various Great Powers before the war. During the war the Austrian Fleet played the role of the fleet in being tying down large numbers of British, French and Italian warships.

In this first book in English about the battleships of the Austrian Navy, Paul Kemp describes the policies which led Austria-Hungary to enter the naval race and discusses the unique nature of the Austrian Navy with its many different nationalities. The operational history of each of the ships in the five classes of Austrian battleships is fully described and supported with technical particulars of the ships and line drawings. The book is well illustrated with photographs many of which have not been published before.

The result is an imaginative and wide-ranging study of one of the worlds least known Navies.
