Editorial Reviews

Review

"Author Angus Konstam does a superlative job of discussing both the historical background of these wars as well as the ships involved, the tactics used and the way crews were trained... Overall, an excellent reference and most interesting read in a period of history that has escaped the notice of many of us. Highly recommended." - Scott Van Aken, Modelling Madness

More About the Author

With over 50 history books in print, Angus is a widely recognised and much-published historian. While he specialises in military and naval history he has also written numerous more general history books, designed to make the subject more accessible to a wider audience. Uniquely he has been able to draw on his expertise as a senior museum curator who has worked on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as on his academic training as a historian and as a maritime archaeologist.

His latest book is a full-length biography: Blackbeard: America's Most Notorious Pirate, which is published by Wiley & Sons. of New York (June 2006)

Angus is also just finished writing a history of the Allied landings at Salerno in September 1943 for the British publisher Pen & Sword, and he is currently working on a new project, with the working title of Supership: The Quest for the Renaissance Battleship.

Angus lives in Edinburgh, in Scotland.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Pink Fluffy Bunny on January 9, 2012
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent and colourful introductory volume to a particularly colourful period in naval history, as there were a large number of masterful marine painters working in the period, many of whose paintings are reproduced here. The author is an expert naval historian of the age of the wooden ship, and also an excellent writer.

The Contents are -
P04: Introduction
P06: Chronology
P07: Design and Development
.English Ship Design; Dutch Ship Design
P23: Construction and Operation
.Shipbuilding; Manpower; Ordnance; Tactics
P40: The Ships
.Major warships of the English Fleet 1652-74; Major warships of the Dutch Fleet 1665-67
P46: Further Reading
P48: Index

The Colour Plates -
A: The Commonwealth: Naseby (1652) [renamed Royal Charles in 1660, captured at the Medway 1667] - full page showing a full side-view with sails and rigging
B: The Restoration: HMS St. Andrew (1673) - a waterline view (at sea) showing the port (left) side and stern
C: Early Dutch: Brederode (1653) - at sea, showing the port quarter and stern
D: Later Dutch: Eendracht (1666) and Golden Leeuw (1672); 1 - front and starboard view, at sea with masts and sails, etc; 2 - front and port view, at sea, but no masts
E: The Sovereign (1652) [formerly The Sovereign of the Seas, but after the refit of 1651] - a two-page cut-away & keyed side view with sails and rigging
F: The Battle of Scheveningen 1673 - the Triumph (60) under fireship attack. This is a spectacular painting (by modern standards) showing a fireship in the foreground obscuring the rear half of the Triumph (but not the stern), which is taking up 2/3 of the page, and another English vessel is in the left 1/3 of the page, facing us almost full-on.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The stories of ancient methods,seamanship and tactics the author has used in describing Naval Warfare in the days of sail are very vivid and exciting. Great history lesson. I plan to use this as a great reference book.

Having over 20 years in the U.S. Navy I served aboard aboard Battleships, Cruisers, and Destroyers as "Gun Fire Conrolman, Chief, Warrant Gunner, then commisioned as "Mustang Gunnery Officer". The techniques, weapons, and warfare have changed considerably since the days of sail, however the guts, stamina, bravery, and lore of the fighting sailor still appear to remain the same. After reading this book, I only wished that I had been in some of these decriptive battles along with the gunners of yore.

Osprey is reknowned for excellent booklets. This one has superb color illustrations of major warships, van de Velde engravings and copies of paintings. Included is a concise summary of the key players and events, and how the warships evolved. My only complaint is I wanted lots more! Duff Griffith

Format: Paperback
Here in Brazil we have very little information on those conflicts that were crucial to the development of naval tactics and strategies. The text is synthetic but very explanatory, and the pictures and graphics are exquisite. It is worth reading every page.
