Full Description:

All aspects of the English navy in the second half of the seventeenth century are comprehensively described in this book by one of Britain's leading authorities of a period that witnessed the creation of a permanent naval service. From the time when the Fleet Royal was taken into Parliamentary control until 1689, when war with the Dutch came to an end, the navy's ships, shipbuilding, dockyards and bases, seamanship, and gunnery are covered, along with details of its administration, recruitment practices, and shipboard life. One of the book's most significant players is Samuel Pepys, whose tireless work over thirty years did so much to develop systems for construction and administration that prepared the navy for its global struggle with the French. This book will appeal to scholar and layman alike.

Dr. J. David Davies is the author of the critically acclaimed Gentlemen and Tarpaulins and chairman of the Naval Dockyards Society in Great Britain.
