The Sea Warriors chronicles the real-life adventures of the great sea captains who spent long, arduous years on the world's oceans, fighting for king and country, to win and rule the waves. The struggles of the Royal Navy's finest commanders encompass the Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812, as well as fights against pirates and battles with the sea itself.Author Richard Woodman, best known for his Nathaniel Drinkwater series of historical novels, recounts in exciting detail the deeds of the captains and mates who manned the opposing frigates -- who blockaded ports, who intercepted the enemy's trade, who protected merchant ships from enemy attacks and piracy. Extraordinary characters stride across these pages -- men like Lord Cochrane, Charles Brisbane, and Nisbet Willoughby -- naval heroes who for nearly two centuries have stood in the shadow cast by the famous British admiral Horatio Nelson. Some, like Warren, Pellew, Cochrane, and Collingwood, still have some measure of renown, while others are almost unknown today despite their brave and brilliant exploits.… (més)

Not as interesting as his Drinkwater novels. However, it is an excellent resource for understanding the strategy and tactics that make "The Age of Fighting Sail" such a fascinating era for novelists. ( )

An engaging book about naval warfare during the Napoleonic Age. ( )

This book is a workmanlike account of the long sea war between England and France between 1793 and the capitulation of Napoleon. It's worth reading if you're interested in understanding that war's shape in some detail, perhaps because you're reading the Hornblower or Aubrey/Maturin novels.

The book's great strength is that it puts the sea battles into a strategic context better than any other book I've encountered; Woodman's generally able to tell you both what the British Admiralty expected when they sent a fleet--or an individual frigate--to a specific station, and what the opposing commanders were trying to accomplish as hostilities began. I really like that.

The problem is that the story often drags. While Woodman's good at describing sea battles, in this sort of quantity they begin all to sound the same. As a result, I regularly found myself wishing he'd get back to describing the context. Really didn't expect that.

This review is also available on a dabbler's journal. ( )
