Originally published in 1922, this book analyses the battle of Toulon in 1793 from the standpoint of the British naval forces. Rose reviews the historical background of the battle, the importance of Toulon as a naval base and the long-lasting effects of the battle's murky outcome. Several appendices containing the text of journal entries and various letters by those involved in the British side of the fighting are also supplied. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the War of the Austrian Succession or British naval history.
