In the massive revolution  that affected warship design between Waterloo antd the Warrior, the Royal Navy was traditionally depicted as fiercely resisting every change until it was almost too late, but these old assumptions were first challenged in this authoritative history of the transition from sail to steam. Originally publisehed in 1990. This classic work is here reprinted in an entirely new edition, with mose extensive illustration. The book traces the gradual introdution of more scientific methods and the advent of steam and the paddle fighting ship, iron hulls and screw propulsion.
