A rare insight into Russian naval history as never seen before A look into the remarkable world of early Russian naval
officers Nearly 500 archived images from museums and private collections This unique look at the Russian Imperial Navy
of the late 19th and early 20th centuries contains nearly 500 images from archives, museums and private collections. We
see how the Russian Navy's construction and activities were shaped largely by the interests, opinions and policies of
the Imperial House of The Romanovs. We discover how the Baltic and Black Sea fleet were organized to benefit the
imperial cause and how the officers and seamen who served in them lived and worked, trained and fought. The Imperial
Russian Navy is a remarkable look at a remarkable world, long gone in history but alive in the pages of this book.
