This review is from: Britain Against Napoleon: The Organization of Victory, 1793-1815 (Kindle Edition)
This wonderful book describes what went on behind the scenes to ensure that the Royal Navy and the army had the resources needed to fight Napoleon. Politics, finance, manufacturing, communications, transport, recruitment and much beside are documented with telling stories of individual efforts. Very well written.
