I was looking for some costume references for Royal Navy Officers for the Napoleonic era and this was perfect--it includes some of the clothing regulations as well as lots of illustrations--it's a great reference in general for the Royal Navy of the period, though you should get Nelson's Sailors if you want more information on the regular able seamen, and British Napoleonic Ship of the Line for cutaways of the Victory and ship lore of the period.

The Osprey Books always provide an excellent summary. It doesn't go into exhaustive detail, but it doesn't need to. It is a very good starting point for anyone interested in the British Navy of this era.

Missing the color plates. An incomplete book. The book description should indicate it does not include very important illustrations. Do not buy!

This has decent information. However, the Kindle version does NOT have the color plates, which pretty much renders it useless.

Being a big fan of everything related to the military & age of sail, this is well-written and concise book. I really enjoyed it, and the author was extremely knowledgeable of his material. I'd truly recommend this text.

Excellent research on British Naval Uniforms. Text is specific, drawings clarify the details. Very handy book to have on the shelf.
