The book addresses all the usual kind areas to be found in an Osprey - the fleets themselves; organisation & crews, ranks, recruitment and service; clothing, armour and weapons; the ships themselves; and seaborne warfare. A few surprises are thrown up to combat our misconceptions and suppositions. For example, it is commonly believed, on the basis of one single literary reference, that all naval personnel wore blue clothing as a camouflage, but archaeological analysis suggests that red was in use too. Graham Sumner's accompanying colour plates are of the usual high standard.
Readers interested in the Roman navy may also wish to take a look at the more thorough Roman Britain and the Roman Navy.
If you buy it from Amazon you'll get it a lot cheaper than from the likes of Waterstones. Highly recommended, the only reason I haven't given it five stars is because like most Osprey titles its as slim as slim and you can read it from cover to cover in no time!
