Part of the War, Culture and Society, 1750 –1850 book series (WCS)


Naval officers in the eighteenth century comprised an international community, but our understanding of that community is fractured. This book traces the professionalization of naval officers across Europe in the age of sail. It depicts their shared experiences, the similarities that connected officers, and the differences that can only be seen from an international perspective.
