Synopsis: By the end of the sailing era the 50-gun ship had come to be regarded as a hybrid--too small to stand in the line of battle, but lacking the speed and handiness of the frigate--so was often dismissed as a naval architectural dinosaur left over from an earlier age. This prejudiced view has gone unchallenged in modern naval history, but this new book reveals the crucial role of the 50-gun ship in the development of both the battleship and the frigate, and explains the enduring role which ensured the survival of the type into the nineteenth century. True to the intentions of the ?ShipShape? series, it is the first extended study of a type which is both technically interesting and historically undervalued.

About the Author: RIF WINFIELD has had a varied career in shipping, computer programming and retail management as well as an active involvement in politics both in Britain and overseas. He has undertaken extensive research on the Navy of the Stuart and Hanoverian eras, is a former contributor to naval periodicals including Jane?s Fighting Ships, and in particular provided extensive contributions to David Lyon?s monumental Sailing Navy List. He holds a degree in International Politics from the University of Wales at Aberystwyth, where he now lives with his wife Ann and their daughter. This is his first naval book.
