About this title


The victory at Trafalgar marked the beginning of nine years of expansion and domination by the Royal Navy right across the globe. This book charts the events of those years, including the Battle of San Domingo in 1806, the attack on Copenhagen in 1807 and the capture of the French base on Mauritius in 1810. Also covered is the Navy's crucial support of Wellington's army in the Peninsula War. Thematic sections of the book feature the skills of the seaman and the lives of prisoners of war. The prints and drawings collection of the National Maritime Museum is the source for the 300 contemporary illustrations.

About the Author:

RICHARD WOODMAN has recently retired after a career at sea as an officer, first with the Blue Funnel and Glen Lines, and later with Trinity House, the prestigious and time-honored service responsible for lighthouses, seamarks and navigational aids around the coasts of the British Isles. He became its Deputy Marine Superintendent in 1991 and in 1992 was promoted Captain. He began writing at sea, and has some two dozen novels to his credit, including the Nathaniel Drinkwater series, for which he has immersed himself in the history and culture of the 1793-1815 period in which they are set. He is also the author of numerous non-fiction works, including a prize-winning history of Trinity House.
