In June 1931, two years after Vice Admiral Albert P. Niblack’s death, the U.S. Naval Institute sent the original typescript of this booklet to the U.S. Navy’s Office of Naval Records and Library, where it was filed with other unpublished naval histories and accounts for the 1911-1927 period. Niblack’s account remained unnoticed for several decades until it was brought to light by John Hattendorf.

Vice Admiral Albert P. Niblack’s account is published here with additional biographical and historical material by John Hattendorf which, together with Niblack’s original account, makes an important contribution to historical knowledge about the U.S Navy’s operations during World War One and particularly the U.S. Navy’s role at Gibraltar.
