Críticas:

The ship was a weapons platform carrying a variety of armaments designed to complement each other and present a multi-layered weapons system. All of these are copiously illustrated with photographs, technical drawings and instructions for their use, and anyone buying the two-volume work also receives a DVD with many more line drawings and photographs, plus documentary film on the building and firing of wrought-iron and bronze replica guns at the Royal Armouries.' -- Christopher Catling SALON - The Society of Antiquaries Online Newsletter, No. 259, No. 256, 6 June 2011 The authors of these essays are leaders in their own fields and the quality of writing is exceptional. It is complimented by a plethora of high quality photographs and detailed line drawings that portray the wide variety of weaponry recovered from the ship. The icing on the cake is a DVD with many more line drawings and photographs, plus documentary film on the building and firing of wrought-iron and bronze replica guns at the Royal Armouries.' Classic Arms and Militaria, Oct/Nov 2011 This is an important and informative publication, magnificently produced. It is not just a triumph of nautical archaeology, which after all is only the process by which these outstanding results were achieved; but, much more significantly, it adds immeasurably to the sum of knowledge we possess about the evolution of warfare in general at a crucial stage of its development. At the same time it has demonstrated that archaeology is a rich source of primary information for historians, who now know more new things about Tudor naval tactics than documentary sources alone could ever have provided.' -- Colin Martin International Journal of Nautical Archaeology, 2012 "...[Ships and Guns and Weapons of Warre] importantly advance current perspectives on naval armaments in the late and post Renaissance eras. They are copiously illustrated and annotated, making them major resources for further research and as reference points for archaeologists and historians. Both of them are absolutely essential items on the bookshelves of any serious student of early modern naval technological history." -- Robert Desmoulins, Caumont-sur-Durance Nautical Research Journal , 57:4 (December 2012) "...provided a monumental amount of information that should prove useful to historians, archaeologists and those interested in maritime, naval, or history of technology." -- Amy Mitchell-Cook, Pensacola, FL The Northern Mariner/Le marin du nord, Vol XXII, No. 2 (April 2012)

Reseña del editor:

This volume is devoted to consideration of the ordnance, munitions and equipment for war - the raison d'etre for the building of the Mary Rose. It begins with a full description of the guns, followed by discussion of the many objects that relate to their use: the shot, the gunpowder and the items needed for loading and firing, as well the experiments that have been carried out in the manufacture and use of specific gun types, carriages and other items. This is followed by chapters dealing with other ordnance: incendiaries, hand guns, staff weapons and archery equipment. The volume concludes with a drawing together of all the evidence to present a detailed consideration of the ship as a fighting unit and an indication of some of the major topics that still require research. Please note that the reduced copies are damaged - the slipcase is either split or missing entirely.
