It's almost impossible to go wrong with a Robert Gardiner books where the Age of Sail is concerned. I have this version and the one that was reissued with better illustrations later.

I've got that one, and several others from Gardiner. I agree, hard to go wrong with his work!

I have series by Gardiner that goes through the Revolutionary to Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812. Excellent work with wonderful illustrations to guide and explain. I greatly respect his work.

Agree re Gardiner. You may buy with confidence anything written by this author.

Thanks also!…

You just need to be careful that you don't get trapped by "Ooh – new book !" when it is actually an update to a previous version you already have on your bookshelf.

I've always bought the update anyway, but you should know what you are buying.

I would also recommend Sam Willis. I am just starting his "Fighting at Sea in the eighteenth Century" and find the tactical minutiae fascinating. Set out clearly and concisely.

I am thinking of reading his "Glorious First of June" next.
