Naval & Mercantile History

Naval warfare is as old as conflict on land and as our title implies, maritime warfare is as important to us as terrestial battles. From the great galley battles of ancient Greece and Rome, Salamis and Actium, through the Barbary Coast pirates, the Spanish Armada and the long wars between England, France and Holland for control of colonial trade, control of the seas has meant political and economic power. Finally, with the sea battles of the Napoleonic Wars and the age of Nelson, maritime warfare entered the modern era. The two world wars saw the final end to Britain's domination of the seas and the emergence of the US as the maritime superpower. The Naval and Military Press has a whole fleet of books covering the whole history of warfare at sea, just look and see!
