  • British Warship Recognition: The Perkins Identification Albumsby Richard Perkins

    Seaforth Publishing 2017; US$ 43.84

    The Richard Perkins warship identification albums form one of the most detailed studies ever undertaken of the changes to the appearance of Royal Navy ships. However, it is a unique hand-drawn manuscript artefact in the care of the National Maritime Museum, so despite its value it is rarely seen by anyone besides the museum's curators, for whom it... more...

    The career of Guernsey-born Admiral James Saumarez reads like an early history of the Royal Navy.

  • Freeing the Baltic 1918–1920by Geoffrey Bennett; Rodney M Bennett

    Pen and Sword 2017; US$ 19.15

    In 1919, the new governments of the besieged Baltic states appealed desperately to the Allies for assistance. A small British flotilla of light cruisers and destroyers were sent to help, under the command of Rear Admiral Sir Walter Cowan. They were given no clear instructions as to what their objective was to be and so Cowan decided that he had to... more...

    Pen and Sword 2017; US$ 16.41

    On 22 May 1941 the cruiser HMS Gloucester (The Fighting 'G') was sunk by aircraft of the Luftwaffe during the Battle of Crete.

  • USS Lawrence vs HMS Detroitby Mark Lardas; Paul Wright

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2017; US$ 10.99

    The most critical naval fighting during the War of 1812 took place, not on the high seas, but on the inland lakes of North America: the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain. Carrying between 12 and 22 cannon, the British and American sloops-of-war were ship-rigged, brig-rigged or schooner-rigged vessels. Lakes actions often involved two ships facing each... more...

  • Sevastopol’s Warsby Mungo Melvin CB OBE

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2017; US$ 21.99

    Founded by Catherine the Great, the maritime city of Sevastopol has been fought over for centuries. Crucial battles of the Crimean War were fought on the hills surrounding the city, and the memory of this stalwart defence inspired those who fruitlessly battled the Germans during World War II. Twice the city has faced complete obliteration yet twice... more...
