Throughout Britain's history, one factor above all others has determined the fate of the nation: its navy. N. A. M. Rodger's definitive account reveals how the political and social progress of Britain has been inextricably intertwined with the strength - and weakness - of its sea power, from the desperate early campaigns against the Vikings to the defeat of the great Spanish Armada. Covering policy, strategy, ships, recruitment and weapons, this is a superb tapestry of nearly 1,000 years of maritime history. 'No other historian has examined the subject in anything like the detail found here. The result is an outstanding example of narrative history' Barry Unsworth, Sunday Telegraph

The Command of the Ocean describes with unprecedented authority and scholarship the rise of Britain to naval greatness, and the central place of the Navy and naval activity in the life of the nation and government. It describes not just battles, voyages and cruises but how the Navy was manned, how it was supplied with timber, hemp and iron, how its men (and sometimes women) were fed, and above all how it was financed and directed. It was during the century and a half covered by this book that the successful organizing of these last three - victualling, money and management - took the Navy to the heart of the British state. It is the great achievement of the book to show how completely integrated and mutually dependent Britain and the Navy then became.

In the 18th century, Britain became a great imperial power through war and its ability to maintain a strong navy. There have been many political and military histories of the sailing Navy that look at battles and personalities, aspects of naval administration and life below decks. This book is the first study of the Navy of the period in a cultural context. It explores the place of the Navy in the formation of public attitudes to war and peace, nation and empire, race and gender. It aims to help reposition naval history and illustrate its importance for interdisciplinary study. As well as drawing on literary sources, the author uses the vast collections of the National Maritime Museum - paintings, cartoons, ceramics, amongst others - to focus attention on material that has been little exploited.
