The life work of father and son - and it shows. Superbly in-depth, with beautiful colour plates and clear diagrams that helped explain tactics and how they evolved from the Anglo-Dutch wars to the Napoleonic Era.

Relatively easy to read with many documents to back the authors up. This is a very informative piece, and to someone writing nautical novels like me, it is essential!

Sometimes I got a bit bogged down with this, lots of numbers, 80's, 74's, first rate, third rate. Excellent pictures, but sometimes the author's opinions of the naval characters of the time got a bit ahead of me actually reading about them. Good summaries of the actual events, but my nautical noviceness made it a bit difficult for me to keep up at times.
