THE ROYAL NAVY 1776-1815
A BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY AND CHRONICLE
Drawing on over two hundred and fifty published sources, this work in progress is a comprehensive and readable reference guide to the golden age of Naval History from the commencement of the American War of Revolution in 1776 to the termination of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815. It is in two parts – a Biographical History and Chronicle – and will eventually consist of approximately 2m words. The vast majority of the work has already been completed and once validated and edited will be added to the site in a chronological order with biographies of the officers being inserted as and when they appear in the history..
