    It’s often forgotten that the American war of independence was very much fought on the oceans – and on a remarkable scale that involved 22 different navies, spanned a decade and ended with the last shot being fired in the Bay of Bengal in 1783.

     

    The book reflects on the long-lasting impact of the war, the way it re-shaped global sea trade patterns and the maritime profi le of many major powers such as France, Spain and the Netherlands, and – somewhat ironically – resulted in a much stronger British Royal Navy.

     

    The Struggle for Sea Power: The Royal Navy vs the World; 1775-1782
