A Naval History Of Britain, 1649-1815
Hardcover: 976 pages
Starred Review. The adjective "magisterial" is justified for this colossal second
volume of a complete history of British sea power, which began with The
Safeguard of the Sea (1998); the author of the classic 18th-century British
naval history, The Wooden World, has surpassed himself here.
