This is a naval history of Greece in the 1910s, a decade when the geographic importance of the country and its naval capabilities both increased considerably. The book's aim is to explain the causes of these phenomena and their consequences in peace and war with regard to the satisfaction of Greek national aims, the Mediterranean naval situation and the Balkan balance of power. The response of the great powers to the naval importance of Greece and relations between Greece and those powers are also explored. This is largely concerned with Anglo-Greek naval relations, an important element of which was the activities of the British naval missions to Greece. The competition between Britain, France, and Germany for Greek naval procurements and naval influence, and Greek-Turkish naval competition are also examined. Ultimately,Greek Naval Strategy and Policy 1910-1919is an examination of the difficulties and rewards of a small but growing naval power's relations with Britain and other great navalpowers of the time.
