From the cover: “With 25 battles selected, discussed and assessed by an international author team and superbly illustrated by colour paintings and contemporary photographs and prints, ‘Great Battles of the Royal Navy’ is a superb visual and historical tribute to the great traditions of Britain’s navy, from the earliest days, through the long centuries when the ‘wooden walls’ both protected the British Isles from invasion and helped build a world empire, to the wars of the twentieth century. It will delight all with an interest in the sea, its ships and the greatest actions fought over 1100 years of naval warfare.”
