Product description


This second of a two-volume maritime history of Devon covers the story of the county's maritime affairs, from the late-18th century to the present day. These were years of great development in Britain's maritime activities, both naval and mercantile, and this volume tells the story of Devon's participation in these events. The book contains 26 chapters covering a wide array of subjects, including the county's role in the Napoleonic and Revolutionary Wars, the shipbuilding industry, steamship enterprise and emigration, shiphandling and the hazards of the Devon coastline, the relationship with the Royal Navy during World War II, and the story of the county's fishing industry.
