The Sea Warriors -- a book not to be missed!


Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I have just read 380 pages of pure pleasure, it was like a ship spotters guide to models from MSW. So many of the ships mentioned on the MSW website appear in this book. Tactics, sailing and fighting techniques, maps and diagrams and the tales of those who served in them-- not Only Royal Navy but US, French Dutch and Spanish ships of the same period... a true insight to that period of sea warfare.  I have read lots of books on this topic but this one trumps them all.  and 'no'  I have no link with the book, publisher or Author LOL!! :pirate41:

Was already on my bookshelf to read!

 

2p (yes £0.02) + £2.80 postage on Amazon (used)

 

A google search also brought it up on google books where you can read the entire book online - didn't think you could, but there it is.

You can't save it, but can add it to your google library

 

Reading at the moment, in a similar vein, 

A Brief History of Fighting Ships: Ships of the Line and Napoleonic sea battles, 1793-1815 by David Davies

gives a good basic account of some of the major battles, some background information on the ships and the crews conditions of service, and life on board.

 

Again £0.01 on amazon

 

Cheers,

Bob
