… Conflict in the Mediterranean, published on 26 June 2017 by Pen & Sword Military, ISBN 9781473833951, 265 pages is a survey of the Napoleonic Wars in the Mediterranean over the period 1793 to 1815.

"The campaigns fought against Napoleon in the Iberian peninsula, in France, Germany, Italy and Russia and across the rest of Europe have been described and analysed in exhaustive detail, yet the history of the fighting in the Mediterranean has rarely been studied as a separate theatre of the conflict. Gareth Glover sets this right with a compelling account of the struggle on land and at sea for control of a region that was critical for the outcome of the Napoleonic Wars. The story of this twenty-year conflict is illustrated with numerous quotes from a large number of primary sources, many of which are published here for the first time."

I look forward to your review, particularly as to its utility as a wargamer's reference for OOB etc.

Piers Macksey's War in the Mediterranean is still the standard work on the subject, I think. So, the war isn't that forgotten…
