Sir Herbert Richmond (1871–1946) was a prominent naval officer and historian who wrote extensively on maritime history. Originally published in 1920, this book forms part two of Richmond's three-volume series on the role of the Navy during the War of Jenkins' Ear, a prolonged conflict between Britain and Spain that lasted from 1739 to 1748. The text offers a detailed analysis of developments and engagements in the war from approximately 1743 to 1746. Appendices and a variety of illustrative material are also provided. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in naval history and eighteenth-century history in general.
