This book is a study of how the Royal Navy faced the problems caused by the American revolt against British authority during the years of the American Revolutionary War, 1775-1783. The author examines one crucial question: why was the British navy unable to crush the rebellion in America by cutting off the flow of arms and military supplies from Europe to the American rebels? By taking this question as central to the conduct of the war the author examines such issues as American concepts of political rights and how these concepts could not be combatted by warships, the aid from neutrals to the rebels and the problems Britain faced trying to crush the rebellion when confronted by her enemies in Europe and elsewhere. By taking on these issues, the author shows the limits of Britain's naval power and the doubts that were cast on her policies. Size: 8vo. Nº de ref. de la librería 140118

Descripción Scolar Press, Aldershot, 1st.ed., 1989. (V) + 250 pp., 8 maps & 6 plans. D.j., 23 x 15cm. FINE. The author, Professor of History at Queens College, Flushing, New York, examines how the Royal Navy fared with the problems caused by the revolt in the American colonies which led to the War of American Independence, 1775-1783. In particular he asks why was the Royal Navy unable to crush the rebellion in America by blockade ? From this viewpoint he examines American concepts of political rights and how they failed to be overcome by sea-power ; the aid and supplies the rebels received from neutral countries, and the additional problems the British navy faced when her traditional enemies in Europe took advantage of the confused situation across the Atlantic. An interesting and important study. THE ROLE OF THE ROYAL NAVY DURING THE WAR OF AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE. FINE COPY. Nº de ref. de la librería C140B219
