Naval odyssey.

Published 1936 by J. Cape in London .
Written in English.

About the Book

An account by a British officer, on board the 'C-Class' cruiser "Cassiopeia", of operations in the Mediterranean and the Golden Horn in the early 1920s, including the evacuation of refugees from the burning town of Smyrna (now Izmir) in December 1922.
Despite the author's sardonic and half-jocular style the facts underlying this book give a picture of the work of the peacetime navy between the two World Wars.
A good read for both the student of the period and the general reader. Illustrated by black and white photographs.
