Maurice Loir (1895) Naval Battles of the Future

Maurice Loir’s (1895) Naval Battles of the Future takes the form of a series of journal entries by a perceptive and philosophical naval officer aboard a French vessel engaged in dreadnought warfare in the Mediterranean. It is a sobering reflection on patriotism, solidarity, and ambition, and a reminder of the human element in war-future, final, or otherwise.
