Naval warfare : an illustrated history by Richard Humble( Book )

19 editions published between 1983 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The clash of nations on the high seas has had a profound effect on world history. Ever since the first hand-to-hand galley battles of classical times, states have relied for their survival and prosperity on the strength of their sea power. Each new advance in technology has, in time, produced a countermeasure, and, as the balance tipped this way and that, the deadly efficiency of today's missile-armed navies has evolved. But ships and weapons alone are not the whole story. The men who sailed the ships, laid the strategy and manned the guns have just as important a place in history. This book tells the story of steadily advancing technology proving itself against a background of human heroism and tragedy. Naval Warfare is divided into six parts, each dealing with a particular era of naval history. The introductions to each part give an in-depth account of the new technology of that age, and the resultant innovations in naval tactics and strategy. There are separate sections on every major naval campaign from the sea battles of ancient Greece and Rome, through Lepanto and Trafalgar, right up to the present day, including the recent war in the Falklands. The most important naval commanders, from Drake and Hawkins to Nelson, Beatty and Donitz, are also featured separately, together with accounts of their most famous battles."--Book jacket
