The Royal Navy 1793-1800 : Birth of a Superpower, Hardback Book

The Royal Navy 1793-1800 : Birth of a Superpower Hardback


France declared war upon the British in 1793\. The burden to conduct a long conflict proved heavy for that island nation.

Poverty increased. Liberties and freedoms were sometimes taken away. Thousands of men had to leave their families, and disease, desertion and death meant that many never returned.

At first the Royal Navy barely had enough warships to cope, but eight years later she had more than enough.

By that time a threat of invasion towards Ireland prompted Parliament to enact a new nation, christened The United Kingdom of Great Britain.

As such, 1800 became the final year of the old Kingdom of Great Britain.

As she passed away, many of her men and women might have wondered as to what had made her navy a true Neptune.

What had assisted the slow birth of a naval 'superpower'?

This book seeks to answer that very question.
