COLE Gareth, Arming the Royal Navy, 1793-1815: The Office of Ordnance and the State


<i>© Pickering & Chatto Ltd</i>

Description:  
From the publishers:
The Office of Ordnance has been ill-served by previous accounts of its role during the French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars. Misunderstood and often misnamed, the Ordnance has been seen as inefficient and fatally flawed. By examining the Ordnance alongside other government bodies - the Admiralty, the War Office and the Home Office - Cole offers an account of how and why the Royal Navy was equipped as it was. It is shown that the Office of Ordnance was much more proactive, modernizing and efficient during this period than was previously thought.

Description: From the publishers
 
"This third book in the successful Shorncliffe Lecture Series sets out to put into context Moore's moral compass, principals and experiences that created his philosophy and internal discipline that was key to the “Shorncliffe System of Training.” Moore's own diary entries, letters, recollections of his family, friends, newspapers, contemporary drill manuals and those who served with him have been used. It also includes the less well known, Moore's Instructions to the Battalions of Irish Militia Light Infantry of 1798. The chronology shows the global reach of the British Army and the large number of theatres in which Sir John Moore served. There are over 90 mostly contemporary illustrations including 24 Maps and 20 portraits as well as 14 OOBs, 25 Tables. Volume 2, will explore Sir John Moore's expeditions to the Mediterranean, Sweden and the Peninsular (1806-09)".
