The command of the ocean : a naval history of Britain, 1649-1815 by N. A. M Rodger ( Book )
22 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and German and held by 1,032 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Command of the Ocean describes the rise of Britain to naval greatness, and the central place of the British Navy and naval activity in the life of the nation and its government. Based on the author's own research in a dozen languages over more than a decade, it describes not just battles, voyages, and cruises but also how the navy was manned; how it was supplied with timber, hemp, and iron; how its men (and sometimes women) were fed; and above all how it was financed and directed. It was during the century and a half covered by this book that the successful organizing of these last three - victualing, money, and management - took the navy to the heart of the British state. It is the great achievement of The Command of the Ocean to show how completely integrated and mutually dependent Britain and its navy became." "N. A. M. Rodger provides reassessments of such famous figures as Pepys, Hawke, Howe, and St. Vincent. The particular and distinct qualities of Nelson and Collingwood are contrasted, and the world of the officers and men who made up the originals of Jack Aubrey and Horatio Hornblower is brought to life. Rodger's comparative view of other navies - French, Dutch, Spanish, and American - allows him to make a fresh assessment of the qualities of the British."--BOOK JACKET

8 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
No historical figure of eighteenth century England has been more grossly misrepresented than the inventor of our favorite fast food. The Earl was a diplomat, parliamentary manager, traveler, and had a lifelong passion for music. The political analysis is subtle, original, and well argued. The intellectural and artistic background, and the human quality of the man whose life was blighted by the madness of a dearly loved wife, is brought before us

Essays in naval history, from medieval to modern by N. A. M Rodger ( Book )
5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The articles collected here (two appearing for the first time in English) cover a number of topics central to naval history and illustrate the author's contention that this is not only, or even chiefly, a distinct area of special study, but rather a central theme running through the history of England, and of the whole British Isles. Though the subjects and the styles vary a good deal, the studies are linked by a common approach and some common ideas. Hence many examine ways in which naval history has formed a key element in such subjects as intellectual, religious, administrative or medical history and explored the nature and meaning of sea power as a theme. At the same time naval history is a technical subject, which demands a willingness to understand warships - the most complex artefacts - and the structure of large and complex organisations. Detailed evidence about ships and weapons can build large conclusions, for example about late Anglo-Saxon government and military organisation, or about the nature of warfare at sea in the Renaissance era. While mostly written from the British point of view, several essays explicitly survey naval developments over a range of countries, and even the most narrowly focused are at least implicitly aware of the wider world of war at sea
