FROM IMPERIAL SPLENDOUR TO INTERNMENT The German Navy in the First World War

The Imperial Navy from its birth to scuttling itself at Scapa Flow. With Excellent writing this is a book that provides an interesting contrast between the British and German fleets, particularly the years in port. The British did a much better job of countering the weariness of years of waiting for combat (officers felt dishonored in both navies at sitting in port while the battles raged on land). The book has an excellent analysis of this, and also of the relationship between officers and ranks that was better in the British Navy than the Imperial Navy.
