The Royal Navy was one of the largest and most complex organisations in the pre-industrial world. It was also an important contributing factor to the economic and political evolution of Britain. This book aims at introducing undergraduates to the complexity of the navy and its role in British history. It examines the development of the Royal Navy as a fighting organisation. It brings together technical, administrative, professional, strategic and tactical developments to show why the Royal Navy took on the form that it did.
