Oxford IB Diploma Programme: Sources appropriate to the background on the origins and consequences of the war, related events leading up to the battle, and associated aspects of the battle are included as well. In addition, the volume contains a glossary and an index. The volume is divided into two major sections. First, there is a narrative section divided into logical chapters and, second, an annotated bibliography in which more than entries are provided.
These are given, in most instances, in alphabetical order by author's last name. The narrative portion describes, evaluates, assesses, qualifies, and integrates all of the entries into a whole, making the battle more understandable from British, German, and other perspectives. Nielsen Book Data He argues that these works, the older being a quarter of a century old, are still insightful to new entrants into the field of maritime history.
Holden Furber's Rival Empires of Trade in the Orient, — is an account of European expansion in Asia in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. It tells the story of the rivalries of the East India companies and the growth of British maritime dominance, eventually leading to the Pax Britannica; Sinnappah Arasaratnam, in his Maritime India in the Seventeenth Century , supplements his own researches into the overseas trade of India and its commercial economy, with a thorough study of the current historiography of these themes; Kenneth McPherson's The Indian Ocean: A History of the People and the Sea argues for the existence of a distinctive Indian Ocean World constituted by trade links and commercial networks established over several centuries, and tells us about the peoples, cultures and economies of the Indian Ocean.
Why did the British government declare war on Germany in August ? Was it because Germany posed a threat to British national security? Today many prominent historians would argue that this was not the case and that a million British citizens died needlessly for a misguided cause. This book counters such revisionist arguments. Matthew Seligmann disputes the suggestion that the British government either got its facts wrong about the German threat or even, as some have claimed, deliberately 'invented' it in order to justify an otherwise unnecessary alignment with France and Russia.
From these crucial intelligence documents, previously thought to have been lost, Dr Seligmann shows that in the decade before the First World War, the British government was kept well informed about military and naval developments in the Reich. As a result, the book concludes that the British government's perception of a German threat before , far from being mistaken or invented, was rooted in hard and credible intelligence.
Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson was a colourful and complex character whose supremely successful naval career quickly attained legendary proportions. By he was Britain's paramount hero and already maimed with the loss of an arm and blind in one eye. He returned to war and spent a further two years at sea before cementing his mythical status in death and victory at the battle of Trafalgar in Today, two centuries on, the 'immortal memory' of Nelson shows no sign of fading.
In this book, leading historians and Nelson authorities provide a radical reappraisal of key aspects of his life and legacy: Context and Legacy sheds fresh light on this most studied of lives and provides timely new insights into an enduring icon. This book fills an important gap in the literature on the history of the modern Royal Navy.
Eric Grove provides the only up-to-date, single-authored short history of the service over the last two hundred years, synthesizing the new work and latest research on the subject which has radically transformed our understanding of the story of British naval development. Grove offers a concise and authoritative account of Royal Navy policy, structure, technical development and operations from the end of the Napoleonic Wars to the close of the eventful twentieth century.
Ideal for both specialist and general readers, this essential introduction explains how the Royal Navy maintained its pre-eminent position in the nineteenth century and how it coped with the more difficult problems of the twentieth, in times of peace and war. In this engaging tale of movement from one hemisphere to another, we see doctors at work attending to their often odious and demanding duties at sea, in quarantine, and after arrival.
The book shows, in graphic detail, just why a few notorious voyages suffered tragic loss of life in the absence of competent supervision. Its emphasis, however, is on demonstrating the extent to which the professionalism of the majority of surgeon superintendents, even on ships where childhood epidemics raged, led to the extraordinary saving of life on the Australian route in the Victorian era.
This exciting scholarly work examines Dutch maritime violence in the seventeenth-century. With its flourishing maritime trade and lucrative colonial possessions, the young Dutch Republic enjoyed a cultural and economic pre-eminence, becoming the leading commercial power in the world.
Dutch seamen plied the world's waters, trading, exploring and colonizing. Many also took up pillaging, terrorizing their victims on the high seas and on European waterways. Surprisingly, this story of Dutch freebooters and their depredations remains almost entirely untold until now. Piracy and Privateering in the Golden Age Netherlands presents new data and understandings of early modern piracy generally and also sheds important new light on Dutch and European history as well, such as the history of national identity and state formation and the history of crime and criminality.
Westward expansion has been the great narrative of the first two centuries of American history, but as the historian Daniel Vickers demonstrates here, the horizon extended in all directions. For those who lived along the Atlantic coast, it was the East - and the Atlantic Ocean - that beckoned. While historical and fictional accounts have tended to stress the exceptional circumstances or psychological compulsions that drove men to sea, this book shows how normal a part of life seafaring was for those living near a coast before the mid-nineteenth century.
The Dardanelles Campaign, : Fred R. Van Hartesveldt :
Drawing on records of several thousand seamen and their voyages from Salem, Massachusetts, Young Men and the Sea offers a social history of seafaring in the colonial and early national period. Jeremy Black considers how the ocean affected British exploration, defence, trade, commerce and the role of the navy, as well as the attitudes and perceptions of the British people themselves. Edgar Vincent presents a full-length biography of Nelson, an enduring hero who remains as well known for his passionate private life as for his charismatic leadership and military ability.
This portrait builds on a wealth of recent research as well as fresh analysis of the primary sources. Created Spring by the Institute of Historical Research.
