And however that those less Familiar With Some Of The with some of the Would Be Confused By Shutt be confused by Shutt jumping around too uickly or leaving our some introductory commentary My expectation wasn t super high for this book The four stars are probably a bit generous based upon expectations It s really a series of lectures presented by a college professor on significant naval battles The college professor is interesting and nowledgable but it is still a professor providing lectures The lectures are high level introductions to various significant battles If you re a student of naval history Professor Shutt is not likely to tell you anything about Trafalgar or Midway you don t already now that Said This Is A Very this is a very survey of naval battles and would be a perfect introduction to the subject for a bright teenager interested in such things Var fyrir vonbrig um me essa fyrirlestra B i fannst m r ennarinn Shutt vera n Dancing at Armageddon kv mur vali s nu hva v ri battle Stundum var a einst orrusta en rum tilvikum var a samansafn taka sama sv i yfir langt t mabil Einnig eru herslur vestr na bardaga sem mikilv gustu Ekkert er minnst t mabili As u og Indlandi ur en Ev.
