Full Description:

Between 1793 and 1815 two decades of unrelenting naval warfare raised the sailing man of war to the zenith of its effectiveness as a weapon of war. Every significant sea power was involved in this conflict, and at some point virtually all of them were arrayed against Great Britain. A large number of enemy warships were captured in battle and the Admiralty ordered accurate drafts to be made of many of these prizes. Consequently, ships from the navies of France, Spain, the United States, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, as well as from Britain, were illustrated by an unprecedented variety of paintings, drawings, models or plans.

Robert Gardiner is the author of a number of books, including Frigates of the Napoleonic Wars and resides in England.

Praise for Warships of the Napoleonic Era

“The book itself is handsomely produced. I think any serious naval researcher of the 1793-1815 wars would be most pleased to have this handy on the shelf.”

International Journal of Maritime History, December 2011
