9780060838553: War at Sea in the Age of Sail (Smithsonian History of Warfare)

The seventeenth and eighteenth centuries witnessed the rise of oceanic battle-fighting sail navies, which developed into instruments of worldwide strategic power. Spain, France, Holland and Britain were the leading protagonists but, after the eclipse of first Holland and then Spain, the struggle for history at sea resolved chiefly into a Franco-British conflict. It culminated in Britain¿s maritime triumph in the Napoleonic Wars and the elevation of the Royal Navy to global dominance. WAR AT SEA IN THE AGE OF SAIL shows how such dominance was eventually achieved, with detailed accounts of each of the key naval conflicts from the highest strategic level right down to the experience of the ordinary sailor.

Product Description:

Part of a unique venture: a twenty-four volume series that will capture the entire history of war and warfare, written by the world¿s leading experts.

Fully illustrated throughout and incorporating computer generated cartography that brings the sea battles to life.

Review:

"Every library requires a basic source on sailing ship warfare, a need solidly met by Lambert's profusely illustrated survey of the two centuries of naval dominance. Lambert efficiently economizes his text. Twenty maps and perspective schematics of battles support this able introduction."--"Booklist"
