The Transformation of British Naval Strategy
Available in Stock
James Davey's study of the variety of roles performed by the British navy in the Baltic during the Napoleonic War is concerned with British strategy, naval policy and operations, set in wider political and economic contexts. In particular, it examines the problem of supply and shows how, between 1808 and 1812, sweeping administrative reforms established a highly effective logistical system which allowed the navy to conduct operations that would have been impossible 20 years earlier.
