It says much about the quality of this book that it appears on the pre-joining reading list of Britannia Royal Naval College. The future leaders of the Royal Navy use this excellent account to place their careers in context so that they may better uphold the fighting values and traditions of the service.

HASH(0x9066ccfc) out of 5 stars From Naopleon to Current Times 1 July 2005
By John Matlock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In 1815, at the end of the Napoleonic Wars the British Royal Navy was easily the largest and most capable navy in the world. It was probably stronger than all the rest of the navies in the world put together. After the war it was reduced in size but still remained very formidable. The ships of 1815 had been modernized, but would still have been identifiable to sailors in the days of Drake and the Spanish Armada.

After this time, a series of rapid changes began. As early as 1824 it began the construction of steam powered ships, initially tugs, but was one of the first navies to move to steam warships, ironclads, and iron warships.

This book is a concise short history of the Royal Navy from 1815 to the present time. It discusses the ships, the men, the actions in which they fought and provides a glimple of the future.
HASH(0x9066cfe4) out of 5 stars A great history made accessible 21 Aug. 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I ordered this book, more out of respect for some of my coworkers who have been in the Royal Navy and to fulfil my curiosity. I must say this book went above and beyond and made what could have been dry into very accessible reading. Well done.
