Book News Annotation:
Lavery (Ship of the line and Arming and fitting of English ships of war 1600-1815), among the greatest scholars of the period's warships, has produced here a synthesis of his research. It gives us an intimate experience of navy life, ship configuration, furniture, working and fighting the ships, amphibious operations. Some 400 illustrations--both contemporary drawings and prints, and current photos of models--enhance the immediacy of the text. For all maritime and military history collections. 10x12
