4.0 out of 5 stars A look at Victory of Seapower, June 26, 2000
By A Customer
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great concept, April 11, 2007

This review is from: Victory of Seapower: Winning the Napoleonic War 1806-1814 (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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice book, great way to fill knowledge gaps, February 27, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Victory of Seapower: Winning the Napoleonic War 1806-1814 (Paperback)
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.
