No description available, No description available, No description available, This new book reviews critically recent studies of fire control and describes the essentials of naval gunnery in the dreadnought era br br With a foreword by Professor Andrew Lambert it shows how in the Admiralty rejected Arthur Pollen s Argo system for the Dreyer fire control tables Many naval historians now believe that consequently British dreadnoughts were fitted with a system that despite being partly plagiarised from Pollen s was inferior and that the Dreyer Tables were a contributory cause in the sinking of Indefatigable and Queen Mary at Jutland br br This book provides new and revisionist accounts of the Dreyer Pollen controversy and of gunnery at Jutland In fire control as with other technologies the Royal Navy had been open though not uncritically to innovations The Dreyer Tables were better suited to action conditions particularly those at Jutland Beatty s losses were the result mainly of deficient tactics and training and his battlecruisers would have been even more disadvantaged had they been equipped by Argo It follows the development of the Pollen and Dreyer systems refutes the charges of plagiarism and explains Argo s rejection It outlines the German fire control system and uses contemporary sources in a critical reassessment of Beatty s tactics throughout the Battle of Jutland
