The Naval History of Great Britain Vol. 6 (1811 to 1827)
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 final volume covers the years of 1811-1827. In 1812 a new enemy entered the war at sea, the United States. As a result there were many famous sea fights during these years, the USS Constitution and HMS Guerriere, Chesepeake and Shannon, Macedonian and the United States. It was these very actions that prompted James to write naval history. Also examined are Sir Home Popham’s famous campaign along the North coast of Spain in 1812, which allowed Wellington to shift his supply line and begin to push the French out of Spain. The additional sections cover the Burmese War of 1824 and the volume concludes with an account of the battle of Navarino in 1827, the last major action fought solely under sail.
