FLAG AND FLEET HOW THE BRITISH NAVY WON THE FREEDOM OF THE SEAS
FLAG AND FLEET HOW THE BRITISH NAVY WON THE FREEDOM OF THE SEAS
FLAG AND FLEET HOW THE BRITISH NAVY WON THE FREEDOM OF THE SEAS BY WILLIAM WOOD WITH A PREFACE BY ADMIRAL-OF-THE-FLEET SIR DAVID BEATTY. In acceding to the request to write a Preface for this volume I am moved by the paramount need that all the budding citizens of our great Empire should be thoroughly acquainted with the part the Navy has played in building up the greatest empire the world has ever seen. Colonel Wood has endeavored to make plain, in a stirring and attractive manner, the value of Britain's Sea-Power. To read his Flag and Fleet will ensure that the lessons of centuries of war will be learnt, and that the most important lesson of them all is this—that, as an empire, we came into being by the Sea, and that we cannot exist without the Sea. DAVID BEATTY, 2nd of June, 1919. The growth of the Royal navy, it's history and battles. Extensive coverage of the Navy in the First World War as well. Illustrated. Download (2MB).

The Duyfken

The Duyfken
The Duyfken
Photo essay of the Duyfken Replica built in Fremantle Western Australia. The Duyfken Duyfken (also Duifken or Duijfken) ("little dove" in English, "duifje" in modern Dutch) was a small Dutch ship built in the Netherlands. She was a fast, lightly armed ship probably intended for shallow water, small valuable cargoes, bringing messages, sending provisions, or privateering. In 1606, during a voyage of discovery from Bantam (Banten), Java, captained by Willem Janszoon, she encountered the Australian mainland and Janszoon is thus credited with the first authenticated European discovery of Australia.

The German High Seas Fleet by Admiral Scheer

The German High Seas Fleet by Admiral Scheer
The German High Seas Fleet by Admiral Scheer
Profusely illustrated in this new eBook edition. This edition of Admiral Reinhard Scheer's memoirs is a transcript of the original English version which was published in 1920. In December 1914, Scheer became chief of the Third Squadron of the High Seas Fleet. He led the German fleet into the battle of Jutland, one of the great naval battles of this century. Admiral Scheer was a strong supporter of unrestricted submarine warfare a tactic which ultimately brought the USA into the war making Germany’s defeat inevitable, something Admiral Scheer denies, blaming Germany’s defeat on internal weakness. His attitude shared by others inevitably led Germany into an even more devastating war. Germany"s High Seas Fleet in the World War is not a history of the German navy in World War 1, it is rather a history of the Imperial fleet stationed in Germany which challenged the British Royal Navy for control of the North Sea. This is one of the principal books on naval operations in World War 1. 5MB download.

The Life of Captain Matthew Flinders

The Life of Captain Matthew Flinders
The Life of Captain Matthew Flinders
Matthew Flinders (1774-1814) joined the Royal Navy at fifteen, later claiming to have been inspired by Robinson Crusoe. He served under William Bligh, and charted the Bass Strait in 1798. In 1801 he was commissioned to chart 'New Holland', and so became the first to circumnavigate the island he referred to as Australia. After being shipwrecked on the Barrier Reef and imprisoned for six years on Mauritius on suspicion of spying, he returned to England in 1810 and began work on A Voyage to Terra Australis. He died the day after his book and maps were published. This biography, published in 1914 to mark the centenary of his death, was the first comprehensive study of this central figure of Australian maritime exploration. The leading Australian historian Ernest Scott (1868-1939) based his account on material held in private collections in France as well as on documents deposited in Australian libraries. Includes details of the duplicity and spying conducted by Peron and de Freycinet whilst at Port Jackson in NSW. This book is well illustrated with additional colour photographs of places visited by Flinders added to the original edition. Order and download the eBook (9MB) now.
