New book, 192 pages, 300+ illustrations. Forgetting the set backs of teh American Revolutionary War, in 1793 the Royal Navy embarked on an almost unprecedented era of victories at sea, producing a considerable appetite for pictures of every incident great or small. A thriving trade in prints and engraving grew up, supplemented by watercolors and oils by celebreated artists. These sources form a rich bein that have barely been touched in previous publications, but which this book uses to full effect. Despite numerous defeats, the French navy continued to dispute command of the sea in the period 1793-1797, and the early years of the war abound with fleet engagements, including dramatic victories against the Spanish at St Vincent and the Dutch at Caperdown, between which the navy edured the shocking events of the Great Mutiny.
