University of Exeter Press, 1992 - History - 144 pages
A searching collection of investigations into British naval power in the closing centuries of the sailing ship era. The discussions focus on the later seventeenth century strategy of a 'big ship' battlefleet; the setting up of a Western Squadron post-1689; naval recruiting; naval power and foreign policy; and the administration of the early Victorian navy and the coming of steam.
