British Warships in the Age of Sail 1793-1817 : Design, Construction, Careers and Fates

Author(s): Rif Winfield

Nautical - Pictoral

432 pages, 200 illustrations & plans At the zenith of its power in 1809 the Royal Navy comprised one half of all the warships in the world, the first (and last) time any navy achieved this dominance. Given its importance, it is not surprising that much attention has been lavished on this subject, but among the numerous books on the design, development and technical details of these ships, there is surprisingly little readily available on their careers. Now this gap is comprehensively filled by this superb reference book, outlining the service history of every ship, built, purchased or captured, that fought for the royal Navy in the great wars of the 1793-1815 era
