    Having received a copy of this book over Xmas, I found it an immediately engrossing read, with copious amounts of detail tailor made for the age of sail wargamer interested in the historical realities of warfare in this period.

    Sounds like a pretty good primer, in a way.  My in-depth reading of this period is limited to Obrian’s Mast and Commander series so this book would fill in a heck of a lot of gaps I’m sure!

    I’ve not read this one but I did greatly enjoy both The Struggle for Sea Power and The Fighting Temeraire.  I consider Struggle one of the best books I’ve read regarding the American War for Independence. Anything by Willis get high marks in my book.

    Thanks for this, I put The Struggle for Sea Power on reserve at my local library.
