The Naval History of Great Britain Vol. 5 (1808 to 1811)
Click for larger image

 

William James’ 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. Now this edition, reprinted from the 1837 edition, with each individual volume indexed separately for the first time, provides scholars and students with an accessible and affordable edition of this important work.

The fifth volume covers the years of 1808-1811. During 1808 Royal Navy fleets operated in the Mediterranean and the Baltic, securing British trade interests. After the Summer of 1808 the Navy assisted the Spanish uprising and the campaigns of the British army during the Peninsular War (1807-1814). In 1809 a major attack was undertaken on a French fleet in Basque Roads and in 1811 Captain William Hoste won a notable victory at Lissa, hoisting the signal ‘Remember Nelson’. Throughout these years the Royal Navy continued its less glamorous duties of blockade, commerce protection and commerce attack, carrying out many single ship and boat actions.
