Just finished reading Rule Britannia: The Victorian and Edwardian Navy by Peter Padfield. A good overview of life in the Royal Navy during periods of transition. It became more a history of the Navy prior to WWI as the book went on, vice a description of its fundamental workings, but still interesting.
