Buchbeschreibung George Allen and Unwin, London, 1960. Hard Cover. Buchzustand: Very Good. Zustand des Schutzumschlags: Good. First Edition. Dust jacket price clipped in a clear protective sleeve, wear to edges. Original cloth boards with bright gilt titling on spine, illustration to upper cover. Small bump. Previous owner's book plate. 32 illustrations. 14 tables, map and graph. 467pp. Clean and tight. The men who, to paraphrase the Younger Pitt, saved England by their exertions and Europe by their example, were, primarily, her sailors. The naval officers and men of 1793-1815 have never yet been studied as a single entity, as members of a living, growing profession; and this book is a serious attempt to fill the gap. It follows them from the cradle to the grave. It examines their parentage and home backgrounds, both social and geographical; how they were entered and recruited; how they were promoted-or not, if they were not fortunate enough to enjoy 'Interest': how they were housed and fed on board, from the lordly Captain to the humblest Boy; how they were rewarded-their pay, allowances, prize-money and other possible emoluments; and, finally, the price they paid for saving Britain -their losses by enemy action, accident and disease. It is a fascinating, often surprising story, and, historically, a most significant one. For not only are the hardships and frustrations here described the erowino- 'airs of the modern naval profession: the whole is a social study of one complete cross-section of contemporary Britain. Size: 8vo. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 141320
