The Dover Patrol, which brought together an assortment of vessels ranging from the modern to the antique and included cruisers, monitors, destroyers, trawlers, drifters, yachts and airships, was commanded by a series of radical and polarising personalities and increasingly manned by citizen volunteers. Using first-hand accounts of the participants, the book examines the wide-ranging exploits of the Dover Patrol - from shore bombardment, barrage building and maintenance, anti-submarine work and escort duties to the protection of troops and supplies to the Western Front and ship-to-ship engagements with German forces.
