Format: Hardcover
An excellent Naval History. Well written easy reading. A great array of period pictures, blueprints, and sketches. Concisely organized and well presented. What I enjoyed most about this book was that it not only covers the chronology and naval actions of the period, it also discusses life at sea and how the fleets and ships operated. Particularly interesting are the essays on The ship of the line, 36 and 28 gun frigates and smaller craft with line drawings and pictures of the class of vessel. An excellent book for Naval Historians, ship modellers, and Naval war gamers.

Excellent book, with a good blend of art and history. Each picture is explained in text with associated historical and artistic caveats. For the price I guess you couldn't expect color pictures though I think a few would add to the quality of the book and perhaps add to the cost. With color it would have been 5 stars and a bargan. Mr. Gardiner's books have never disappointed me, and I have a few.

Ive been a buff for this period of naval history for years. This book fills in many of the gaps left by other, also good books. I would recomend this book for anyone interested in the British habit of winning battles and why they could. Wonderful artwork blended with fascinating facts and detail. I learned much about the period and even felt sometimes what it was like to be there.
A must have for your collection !
