Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Empire of the Deep: The Rise and Fall of the British Navy (Hardcover)
This book gives a vivid account of how Navies were made and how they grew,
How technology changed with time, and how this affected the lives of the sailors.
Sadly, this often meant more efficient means of destroying other ships, and other men.
