  • Steady, Boys, Steady!by C. R. Benstead

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2011; US$ 7.99

    The author says this book is a profound study of our incomparable Navy, and indeed it is, but the guileless solemnity with which he presents and explains a wealth of untoward incident combines Norfield's innocently literal interpretations to make it just as diverting as it is profound. Beyond doubt there is no other like it. Both author and artist... more...

This expressed the culmination of naval surface warfare while hinting at the shape of future conflicts. This was a global... more...

  • Buccaneers Of The Caribbeanby Jon Latimer

    Orion Publishing Group 2009; US$ 23.99

    This is the incredible true story of piracy in the Caribbean, proof positive that fact is stranger than fiction.

The lure of Spanish gold was so strong that French and Dutch privateers soon joined them. Sometimes... more...
