    3. A very good, readable description of the Washington Naval Treaty and its effect on the naval development of all its signatories in the 1920s and early 1930s The book explains each nation s naval concerns and objectives, how the Washington treaty addressed or did not address their respective needs, and eventually how the treaty and its ramifications affected the later naval treaty negotiations in Geneva and London.
