Despite the many celebrated victories of the British Army during the Napoleonic Wars, the role of the Royal Navy should never be overlooked. The 'wooden walls' formed the country's first and most important line of defence, and ranged throughout the world to protect Britain's trade-routes and in support of the land forces and overseas possessions. This book covers not only the Navy but also the Royal Marines and Infantry regiments which served alongside naval crews. All aspects of life aboard ship, including the organisation, training and recruitment of the force are comprehensively explored.Biografía del autor:
