450pp, 800g packed/carded for post. Ranging from the Middle Ages through the defeat of the Armada, the triumphs of Nelson to the battles of World Wars I and II, this is a sweeping account of how the Royal Navy made Britain the world’s greatest sea power. More than a battle account, this work shows how the Royal Navy’s technological innovations revolutionized their military power, from broadside gunnery to submarines and aircraft carriers. We also see how the navy played a key role in exploration, from Drake’s circumnavigation of the globe and Cook’s voyages of discovery to Fraser’s search for the Northwest Passage. Abounding in colorful characters, this is a thrilling chronicle of one of the most fascinating chapters in British military history.
