The age of sail is taken to be circa 1650-1850, an era where Britain went from being an 'also ran' on the world stage, squabbling with the Dutch over herring fisheries, to a world power, using her navy to insert and extract land forces, at will.
This is far short of being a definitive work on the subject, however as an introducion to the subject I would be surprised if I could find better. Great.
