Full Description:

Peter the Great created the Russian navy from nothing, but it soon surpassed Sweden as the Baltic naval power, while in the Black Sea it became an essential tool in driving back the Ottoman Turks from Europe. During the 18th century it was the third largest navy in the world yet its history, and especially its ships, are virtually unrecorded in the West. The first comprehensive study in English, it is illustrated with plans, paintings, and prints rarely seen outside Russia.

Edward Sozaev is a Russian naval historian with a number of books to his credit. John Tredrea, translator, editor and long-term collaborator, is an American ship enthusiast with a life-long interest in the Russian navy.
