"The flowering of English ship-building, which made the rather backward nation a leading player in the high-stakes game of oceanic navigation is well described." -- Sea History
"Friel's utterly masterful treatment of technical subjects like sails and hulls is one of the joys of this book... The maps and diagrams by Lynne Friel are minor masterpieces in their own right." -- Albion--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

How extraordinary that there is so little written on this subject apart from Ian's books. I visited the Grenwich Maritime Museum and found it very disappointing. It may be excellent for youngsters wanting to find out about warships in Nelson's time, but there is almost nothing on display about Medieval or Tudor ship development.
I will always treasure this excellent book.
