The Naval History of Great Britain Vol. 4 (1805 to 1807)
Click for larger image

 

The Naval History of Great Britain During the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars William Jamesí Naval History is one of the most valuable works in the English language on the operation of the Royal Navy during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. The original five volumes were published in 1822-24, with a six-volume edition appearing in 1826. Previously the work has only been available to scholars through specialist libraries. This new edition, with each individual volume indexed separately for the first time, provides an accessible, affordable edition of this important work.

The fourth volume covers the famous years of 1805-1807. 1805 remains the most famous of years for the Royal Navy. The narrative in this volume provides a detailed and in depth account of the Battle of Trafalgar and the death of Nelson. However, the examination of the subsequent years proves that naval history did not end in 1805. In 1806 Duckworth gained a notable victory off San Domingo while Sir Sidney Smith annoyed the French (as well as his superiors and army officers) off the coast of Italy. The Cape of Good Hope was captured from the Dutch and an unofficial expedition arrived in the River Plate. In 1807 Britain was isolated from the continent and controversial measures were undertaken at Copenhagen and Lisbon to prevent the French from seizing neutral navies.
