This book describes the British navy in the second half of the seventeeth century, during the long period of conflict with the Ducht. It covers every aspect from naval administration, ship types and shipbuilding, naval recruitment and crews, seamanship and gunnery, shipboard life, anddockyards and bases, to the foreing navies of the period, and the three major wars fought against the Ducht. This is a seminal work for historians, enthusiasts and anyone intrigued by this colourful era of British naval history in which Samuel Pepy’s played such a significant part.
