Sea power in the first and second world wars

Currently in the very rudimentary stage of brain storming ideas for my final year dissertation and thinking along the lines of writing something about sea power in either the first or second world war.

Any book recommendations covering anything maritime related in both wars would be much appreciated especially if it covers the realm of strategy.

" The Navy at WAR" Stephen Roskill is a pretty good over view of the Royal Navy in WW2

" The Rise and Fall of British Naval Mastery" by Paul Kennedy, is good to trace the historic background
The following two are absolute blinders covering WWI sea power. The first one is listed ranks in my top five WWI reads along with Lynn MacDonald's numerous books on the trenches.

Castles of Steel: Britain, Germany and the Winning of the Great War at Sea by Robert K. Massie
