About this title

Synopsis:

First published in 1990, this encyclopedic yet highly readable work gives an indepth description of the Royal Navy in Lord Nelson's time. Filled with over four hundred illustrations, the book is divided into fourteen sections that deal with the design and construction of ships, the navy's administration, and life at sea. Other topics include shiphandling and navigation, gunnery techniques and fighting tactics, and a discussion of foreign navies of the day. Nelson's Navy is an important source book for the naval historian, a valuable reference for the enthusiast, and a revelation to the general reader.

From the Inside Flap:

With a foreword by Patrick O'Brian, Nelson's Navy is the definitive reference work on the British Navy in the Napoleonic era for individuals with an interest in the workings of the greatest fleet of the sailing era. Written by one of the world's leading authorities on the sailing navy, the book contains considerable original research to give a clear and authentic picture of the British navy as a coherent yet complex whole.
