  • ABSTRACT This article explores the development of tactical thought in the Royal Navy during the period leading up to the First World War, and concludes that the direction of tactical thinking and Admiralty construction policy contradict claims put forward by Jon T. Sumida that in 1912 Admiral Sir John Jellicoe developed a ‘technical-tactical synthesis’ that called for fighting at medium ranges (7,000–10,000 yards).
