2013 King-Hall Naval History Conference Proceedings

The War at Sea 1914 - 1918

The eighth biennial King Hall Conference was held in Canberra on 23 - 24 May 2013. The conference was organised by the Sea Power Centre - Australia with assistance from the Australian Naval Institute, the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of NSW Canberra, and the Australian War Memorial. The King Hall Conference has become a significant event in the national and international sea power communities for its wide-ranging discussion of topical naval historical and maritime strategic issues.

The theme of the 2013 Conference was 'The War at Sea 1914 - 1918'. As we approach the centenary of the Great War, it is important that we consider all aspects of this conflict and how it shaped our modern world. The naval war, in particular, deserves reassessment, for much of what has been written previously cannot be considered either comprehensive or reliable. By bringing together naval historians from around the world, this conference provided many new insights on a neglected topic.
