Part of the "Conway's Ship Types" series, this is the first of two volumes dealing with the development of the heavy frigate. It covers the introduction of 18-pounder armament in the War of American Independence, and then analyzes the standard heavy cruiser of the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. Replete with tabular data, the book covers the design background of each class, as well as tackling more general subjects such as armament, performance and naval architecture. It is extensively illustrated with draughts from the National Maritime Museum's Admiralty plans collection.
