Summary
"From naval and military historian Peter Padfield, Maritime Supremacy is exploration of the significance of maritime power in shaping the western ideal of political freedom." "Maritime supremacy details the struggles of the first supreme maritime powers of the modern age, the Dutch and the British, and ends with the emergence of the ultimate successor, the United States of America. Changes in society, politics, trade - including the slave trade - and in naval capability are interwoven with descriptions of the great sea battles by which world power was won."--Jacket
