This book looks at the transition of wooden sailing fleets to the modern steel navy. It details the technological breakthroughs that brought about this change - steampower, armour, artillery and torpedoes, and looks at their affect on naval strategy and tactics.

Part of the ever-growing and prestigious Warfare and History series, this book is a must for enthusiasts of military history.

About the Series

Warfare and History

This new series of single-authored books on war, warfare and society marks a major new publishing initiative in military history for undergraduate students. Covering the whole span of history, the series seeks to encourage works on the impact of war and the preparations for war on social, economic and political developments. The books will eschew the 'battles and generals' approach, and seek to place militarism in context.
