Full Description:

For more than two-hundred years the Royal Navy's dominance of the seas was complemented by its ability to project force ashore. In this book a group of prominent naval historians--Tom Pocock, Michael Duffy, Colin White, Andrew Lambert, Richard Brooks, and Chris Page--examine the naval brigade's role on land. Starting with Sidney Smith's defense of Acre in 1799, it continues through Nelson's Corsica campaign, the Indian Mutiny, the Anglo-Japanese War of 1863-4, the Crimean and Boer Wars, and both world wars. From little-known incidents during "Queen Victoria's Little Wars" to modern Tomahawk missile technology and littoral warfare, this rousing tribute is an essential addition to the Royal Navy canon.
