Originally published in 1914, this book uses the reports of Courts Martial to provide a description of conditions in the British Navy from 1680 down to the end of the Napoleonic Wars. Through carefully selected quotations and rigorous analysis, the text reveals the development of a coherent system of justice within the Navy, one which was instrumental in its progressive modernization. Illustrations are provided, including a page of text and signatures from a report of Court Martial in 1694. This is a highly informative volume that will be of value to anyone with an interest in naval history.
