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.
