STRUGGLE FOR SEA POWER A Naval History of American Independence

£30.00 £5.99

A much-needed maritime focus on the American Revolutionary War. The importance of excellence in seamanship and gunnery is deservedly stressed. Willis brings out the subtlety of events and particularly their timing and delivers many very plausible analyses of cause and effect. The central thesis regarding the silent pressure of sea power is excellently proven. The American Revolutionary War was primarily a Naval war and Willis conclusively demonstrates this, in what should become a standard work on the subject.
