Excelente fascículo que describe cómo era la marina británica a caballo de los siglos XVIII y XIX, con sus tipos de navíos, escalafón, tácticas de combate, uniformes, usanzas, costumbres, castigos y premios, tanto con abundante texto como con grabados, dibujos y fotografías, y buenas láminas en color que muestran la uniformidad. Sólo echo de menos uno igual con respecto a la marina española.

“Wellington the Iron Duke” by Philip Haythornthwaite is part of the Potomac's military profiles which is basically a series of elongated historical essays on various military figures in paperback format. I have wanted to read a biography of Wellington for some time now and then I espied this one on the shelves of a Seattle Half-Price Books. Written in a pithy, erudite manner Mr. Haythornthwaite accomplishes a thorny task in covering the voluminous life and times of one of Britain’s most celebrated figures. Needless to say Mr. Haythornthwaite covers a number of Wellington’s famous battles from both India and the Peninsula Campaign, including his most famous the defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo. He then wraps up his biography with a smart synopsis of Wellington’s political life thereafter. I was so impressed with this mini-biography that I am inclined to not only seek out Mr. Haythornthwaite’s other books, but to also pick up other books in the Potomac series.… (més)

A great place to start if seeking basic information about American Civil War uniforms, markings and flags. Certainly not the end all, be all, but a good place to start
