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.

Format: Hardcover
A nicely detailed account of the Napoleonic Wars. This book details the strategies of different Admirals used to attain victory. It discusses some of the different vessels used during the war. Almost every page at least has one picture on it. The book covers several battles fought during the war. It also gives details on the life of some the men (Officers mostly) who fought in the war. Presents a view of the politics of the nations involved. While most of the book discussed the Bristish, French and Spanish, the final chapters covered other nations not directly involved in the war.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By John F. Redwine on April 11, 2007
Format: Paperback
This whole series of illustrated histories is excellent and this is the best volume of those I have read so far. The short, concise explanations of events along with numerous contemporary illustrations help you to understand the ships and event of the period. I would highly recommend this book and the series in general.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is not a stand alone book in teaching the genre of British naval history but for someone already enamored the detail of the engagements is well protrayed and rivetting. Really liked it, I would buy again.
