In the series of wars that raged between France and Britain from the seventeenth to the nineteenth centuries,seapower was of absolute vital importance. Not only was each nation's navy a key to victory, but was a prerequisite for imperial dominance. These ongoing struggles for overseas colonies and commercial dominance required efficient navies which in turn insured the economic strength for the existence of these fleets as instruments of state power.This new book, by the distinguished historian Jonathan Dull, looks inside the workings of both the Royal and the French navies of this tumultuous era, and compares the key elements of the rival fleets. Through this balanced comparison, Dull argues that Great Britain's final triumph in a series of wars with France was primarily the result of superior financial and economic power.This accessible and highly readable account navigates the intricacies of the British and French wars in a way which will both enlighten the scholar and fascinate the general reader. Naval warfare is brought to life but also explained within the framework of diplomatic and international history. An important new work.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER "Son, we’re going to Hell." The navigator of the USS Houston confided these prophetic words to a young officer as he and his captain charted a course into U.S. naval legend. Renowned as FDR’s favorite warship, the cruiser USS Houston was a prize target trapped in the far Pacific after Pearl Harbor. Without hope of reinforcement, her crew faced a superior Japanese force ruthlessly committed to total conquest. It wasn’t a fair fight, but the men of the Houston would wage it to the death. Hornfischer brings to life the awesome terror of nighttime naval battles that turned decks into strobe-lit slaughterhouses, the deadly rain of fire from Japanese bombers, and the almost superhuman effort of the crew as they miraculously escaped disaster again and again–until their luck ran out during a daring action in Sunda Strait. There, hopelessly outnumbered, the Houston was finally sunk and its survivors taken prisoner. For more than three years their fate would be a mystery to families waiting at home. In the brutal privation of jungle POW camps dubiously immortalized in such films as The Bridge on the River Kwai, the war continued for the men of the Houston—a life-and-death struggle to survive forced labor, starvation, disease, and psychological torture. Here is the gritty, unvarnished story of the infamous Burma–Thailand Death Railway glamorized by Hollywood, but which in reality mercilessly reduced men to little more than animals, who fought back against their dehumanization with dignity, ingenuity, sabotage, will–power—and the undying faith that their country would prevail. Using journals and letters, rare historical documents, including testimony from postwar Japanese war crimes tribunals, and the eyewitness accounts of Houston’s survivors, James Hornfischer has crafted an account of human valor so riveting and awe-inspiring, it’s easy to forget that every single word is true. BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from James D. Hornfischer's Neptune's Inferno.

A ruthless pirate. An English admiral out for vengeance. A Coast Guard cutter out of time and thrust into the middle of a mortal conflict between two very angry men.... Today. Stephen Thompson is a man with a problem. You wouldn't know it by looking at him: A young, brash commander of the Coast Guard cutter USS Melbourne. By all accounts, he should have his whole life ahead of him. 1579. Captain Stone is also a man with a problem. The former XO to a ruthless English captain, Stone is now the captain of his own vessel, the Eustace, a pirate ship prowling the seas of the Caribbean. Now he spends his days eluding his former captain, now Admiral Deadmon, a man who will stop at nothing to wreak havoc upon his former XO as mortal vengeance. As both of them know, it is only a matter of time before Deadmon's ship of the line comes in contact with the Eustace. But Stone has one card left to play before Deadmon catches up with him: A secret that allows the Eustace to travel through time, pulling an unsuspecting Coast Guard cutter back through time with it. Thompson, out of time and out of place, finds himself in the middle of an ageless rivalry between two very angry men. Slowly, Thompson's intentions to survive and protect his crew begin to give way to crossing grey lines of morality, as the only way home lies in the trust of a very elusive pirate captain who may hold the key to the greatest bounty of history.
