It fully covers British naval history, from Alfred the Great to the Dreadnought era. Fred T. Jane (1865-1916) is often regarded the father of modern naval journalism. He produced his first reference book inn 1882 at the time of the Royal Navys bombardment of Alexandria, a collection of his own pen-and-ink sketches informed the public about the ships taking part. Then followed his All the Worlds Fighting Ships in 1897, published since then as an annual reference book covering the worlds navies.
