About this title


As one of the greatest navies in world history, the Royal Navy has a glorious tradition and heritage spanning the centuries of its service to Britain and the crown. Honour and tradition are held in high esteem within the Navy, and this is nowhere better demonstrated than within the walls of its officer training school, The Britannia Royal Naval College at Dartmouth. The famous Gunroom at the College celebrates some of the greatest commanders and epic battles in the history of the Royal Navy, which provides the core of this superb new work.
In this companion volume to Great Battles of the British Army, naval historian Eric Grove has acted as general editor in selecting specific battles from the Gunroom and has gathered together a remarkable team of specialists, academics, historians and serving officers to create a detailed summary of each battle. The story of each battle is thus written by an acknowledged expert in that field.
Each chapter is illustrated with strategic and tactical battle maps, engravings and prints and some of the finest colour paintings available on the subject - many of these from within the closed walls of the Dartmouth Gunroom.
With 25 battles selected, discussed and assessed by an international author team and superbly illustrated by colour paintings and contemporary photographs and prints, Great Battles of the Royal Navy is a superb visual and historical tribute to the great traditions of Britain's navy, from the earliest days, through the long centuries when the 'wooden walls' both protected the British Isles from invasion and helped build a world empire, to the wars of the twentieth century. It will delight all with an interest in the sea, its ships and the greatest actions fought over 1100 years of naval warfare.
