Observations on the Diseases of the Army Sir John Pringle 1810
In which They Served Brian Lavery 2008 "During the Second World War, Britain's Royal Navy had to expand more than sevenfold, in the faces of the threat of invasion, enemy bombing and the need to carry out campaigns all around the world. To find officers for this force it had to move well outside its normal supply of boys trained from the age of 13. It started by recruiting yachtsmen and giving them a smattering of naval discipline before sending them to sea. Then it sent possible officers into action as ordinary seamen, to live a hard and dangerous life in destroyers. Selected men were then given their officer training in three months in an improved seaside base at Brighton. They sailed as officers in all kinds of ships, including the new landing craft which would invade North Africa, Italy and Normandy. Those appointed to escort vessels came under the fearsome gaze of Commodore Stephenson, the 'Terror of Tobermory', before being sent out on convoy escort in the Battle of the Atlantic." "One of Britain's leading naval historians looks at the social background of British wartime naval recruits, the training methods, the personal experiences of those involved and what they had to learn to become an officer of the watch on the bridge of a warship, or even the captain of a landing craft or frigate in the Second World War. The book draws widely from personal experiences of those who served and presents a rich collection of wry quotes and numerous anecdotes from household names such as Alec Guinness, Evelyn Waugh, Nicholas Monsarrat and George Melly as we follow them through the rigours of the war at sea. In Which They Served also has much to say on seamanship, naval technology, leadership and organisation."--BOOK JACKET.
The Indian Response to European Technology and Culture, (A.D. 1498-1707) Ahsan Jan Qaisar 1998 Examining the technological and cultural influences of Europe upon Moghul India in the 16th and 17th centuries, this book employs a variety of sources to counter the assertion that Indian society was historically resistant to change.
The Anatomy of Nelson’s Ships Dr. C. Nepean Longridge 2017-06-28 The history of Admiral Horatio Nelson has been written from every possible angle, but this was not so with his ships. Not until this work was first published in 1955. Before then, such information as there was about the ships was buried in archives on Naval Architecture; only the top expert could have sifted it and present it in a usable form. Dr. Longridge was that expert, and his work became a veritable treasure trove for every naval historian and ship modeller. His research is supported by 271 detailed line drawings, rare photographs and fold-out plans showing hull framing, interior construction, complexing and deck layouts.

Sailing Warships of the US Navy Donald L. Canney 2001 Although a relatively small force during the Age of Sail, the US Navy was nevertheless closely watched by larger maritime powers impressed by the radical thinking and innovative design manifest in so many of its warships. This gives the subject an interest that stretches far beyond the shores of America itself. For over fifty years knowledge of these ships has relied heavily on the works of Howard Chapelle, a practical naval architect with a fine understanding of design, but an amateur historian who was less than professional in his use of sources.
The American-Built Clipper Ship, 1850-1856: Characteristics, Construction, and Details William L. Crothers 2018-05-10 Long of line, incredibly fleet, with tall, raking masts and clouds of sail, the great Yankee clipper ships stir dreams of romance and adventure. This book, the most important and detailed ever to appear on clipper ships, is the fruit of 35 years of research. Lavishly pictorial, it's a boon to maritime historians, model makers, and dreamers alike.
The Port of Medieval London Gustav Milne 2003 It was during the later medieval period that London grew to become the largest town in the land. Certainly by the thirteenth century it had established itself as the principal port in the kingdom, head and shoulders above its rivals. The author is closely involved in a 25-year study of the London waterfront. These extensive excavations enable him to describe the changing appearance of the town and its -- with the ships and merchants over the long period from 600 to 1500. The resulting picture is a vivid reconstruction of the working port of London, the dynamic engine of the medieval economy.

A History of Engineering in Classical and Medieval Times Donald Hill 2013-11-19 It is impossible to understand the cultures and achievements of the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, and Arabs, without knowing something of their technology. Rome, for example, made advances in many areas which were subsequently lost and not regained for more than a millenium. This is a knowledgeable yet lucid account of the wonderful triumphs and the limitations of ancient and medieval engineering. This book systematically describes what is known about the evolution of irrigation works, dams, bridges, roads, building construction, water and wind power, automata, and clocks, with references to the social, geographical, and intellectual context.

Ship Modeling Simplified: Tips and Techniques for Model Construction from Kits Frank Mastini 1990-03-22 In Ship Modeling Simplified, master model builder Frank Mastini puts to paper the methods he's developed over 30 years at the workbench to help novices take their first steps in an exciting pastime. You don't need the deftness of a surgeon or the vocabulary of an old salt to build a model. What you need is an understanding coach. Mastini leads readers from the mysteries of choosing a kit and setting up a workshop through deciphering complicated instructions and on to painting, decorating, and displaying finished models--with patience and clarity, not condescension. He reveals dozens of shortcuts: How to plank a hull "egg-shell tight"; how to build and rig complicated mast assmeblies without profanity; how to create sails that look like sails. . . . And along the way he points out things that beginners usually do wrong--beforehand, not after they've taken hammers to their projects. Ship Modeling Simplified even includes an Italian-English dictionary of nautical terms, the key to assembling the many high-quality Italian kits on the American market. Model building is fun, and not nearly as difficult as some experts would have you believe. Here is everything you'll ever need to get started in a hobby that will last a lifetime.

The Sloops of the Hudson River Paul E. Fontenoy 1994 For more than 200 years, sloop-rigged sailing craft carried the bulk of the commerce on the Hudson River, helping to make New York America's premier seaport. Historian and model-maker Fontenoy looks at the origins of Hudson River sloops among seventeenth-century Dutch vessels, then traces the changes through the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries that resulted in the classic Hudson River sloop of the 1830s-50s. He also considers the revival of the type with the 1969 sloop Clearwater. Making full use of visual documentation, as well as narrative accounts and business records, he has produced the definitive work on this well-known American vessel type. The mix of plans, illustrations, and analysis make this a book for historians, modelmakers, and Hudson River enthusiasts alike.
Gray Steel and Black Oil Thomas Wildenberg 1996 Gray Steel and Black Oil is the first full-length treatment of the development of the fleet oiler concept in the U.S. Navy. The author, Thomas Wildenberg, authoritatively addresses the logistics of how fleets are able to stay at sea in an operational mode, a long-ignored but extremely important subject. For example, in World War II refueling at sea provided the U.S. Navy with the mobility it needed to accomplish its island-hopping advance toward Japan, as advocated in War Plan Orange. He explains how underway replenishment enabled U.S. carriers to range freely across the Pacific in the first months of the war, and later to remain on station far from their bases for weeks at a time. Today the refueling capability of a navy is as important as ever. With this book Wildenberg charts the concept from the first fleet oilers of World War I onward. He examines the Navy's plans between the wars, documents the experience of World War II, and covers the postwar transition period, Korea, Vietnam, and the Gulf War. Numerous tables on ship design and capabilities, descriptions of ship types, photographs of every class of U.S. Navy fleet oiler, and ship drawings are also included.
Sumner-Gearing-class Destroyers Robert F. Sumrall 1995 The US Navy's Sumner-Gearing-class destroyers served as a standard for post-WWII destroyer design and development. In this outstandingly illustrated work (bandw throughout with a 16-page color center-spread) Sumrall traces the origins and evolution of these destroyers over nearly forty years and through three wars, showing the advances made in ordnance, fire control, and steam engineering.
