This new study of war in the age of sail examines the development of warships and battlefleets and the evolution of seapower over nearly two centuries. It shows how an unprecedented expansion of oceanic shipping and trade between 1660 and 1815 went hand in hand with the expansion and development of European and other naval forces.
