The Great Ships
The DreadnoughtsDVD - 2008
Of all the ships that have sailed the sea, none inspires more awe than the dreadnought. Constructed from several thousand tons of steel and armor plate, the battleship is a technical marvel and a potent symbol of national might. Venture back to the early years of the 20th century to see how naval history was made with the launch of the H.M.S. Dreadnought. See archival footage of the mighty ship, and hear from naval historians how it prompted Germany to respond with battleships of its own, creating one of the first and most critical arms races of the century. Learn how the vision of a British Admiral brought about a whole fleet of these superweapons, and relive the awesome engagements between the German and British Fleets in World War I which shaped the future of Europe and the world.
