Harbors and high seas : an atlas and geographical guide to the Aubrey-Maturin novels of Patrick O'Brian by Dean King( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and held by 787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A fascinating and comprehensive collection of maps of the streets, seas, and coasts of Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey–MaturinseriesThe tall-masted sailing ships of the early nineteenth century were the technological miracles of their day, allowing their crews to traverse the seas with greater speed than had ever been possible before. Novelist Patrick O'Brian captured the thrill of that era with his characters Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin, who visited exotic locales in the service of the Royal Navy. From frigid Dieppe to balmy Batavia, they strolled the ports of the world as casually as most do the streets of their hometown. Packed with maps and illustrations from the greatest age of sail, this volume shows not just where Aubrey and Maturin went, but how they got there. An incomparable reference for devotees of O'Brian's novels and anyone who has dreamed of climbing aboard a warship, Harbors and High Seas is a captivating portrait of life on the sea, when nothing stood between man and ocean but grit, daring, and a few creaking planks of wood

War at sea in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance by John B Hattendorf( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard Unger identifies two periods in the development of navies between 1000 and 1650 in Europe, the first running from the late tenth to the thirteenth century, when naval activity was carried on by militias and local figures, including ship-owners and merchants, and the second running from the thirteenth to the seventeenth century, a period which saw the growth of entrepreneurial navies, the development of states, and increasing government interest in force at sea." "Wide-ranging in place and time, yet tightly focused on particular concerns, these new and original specialist articles show how observations on the early history of warfare based on the relatively stable conditions of the late seventeenth century ignore the realities of war at sea in the middle ages and renaissance. In these studies, naval historians firmly grounded in the best current understanding of the period take account of developments in ships, guns and the language of public policy on war at sea, and in so doing give a stimulating introduction to five hundred years of maritime violence in Europe."--Jacket

U.S. naval strategy in the 1990s : selected documents( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The eight documents in this collection are the key published statements that the Navy's leadership created during the 1990s to explain itself to the men and women of the Navy and, in several instances, to Congress, and to the general public. This collection of documents, reflecting the evolution of official thinking within the United States Navy and Marine Corps during the post Cold War era concerning the fundamental missions and strategy of the sea services, is part of a larger project designed to bring greater transparency to an important dimension of our recent naval history. In the present volume, Newport Paper 27, covering the decade of the 1990s, Professor Hattendorf assembles for the first time in a single publication all the major naval strategy and policy statements of this period. Though all are public documents, most of these statements remain very little known and relatively inaccessible, at any rate outside the Navy itself. They are also not always easy to interpret, reflecting as they often do subtle shifts in emphasis or the nuances of internal bureaucratic argument rather than broadly understandable major changes in strategic thought or practice. Accordingly, the documents are accompanied by an introductory essay that attempts to put them in the proper historical and institutional perspective, as well as by a brief commentary for each that provides additional pertinent information and attempts to assess wider significance
