Medieval Maritime Warfare

B2294

Remarkably little coverage has been given to maritime warfare before the 16th Century. This book is therefore particularity welcome because it covers the period from the Fall of Rome, through to the Renaissance. The well-written text is fully supported by sketches and maps, with a very interesting colour plate section.Compelling reading that covers much new ground, recommended.

The Powder of Death

B2340

This is the third stand alone book from best selling author Julian Stockwin. His Thomas Kydd stories, set in the maritime battles of the Napoleonic Wars, have developed a huge international following. This new stand alone book is very different in many respects and has managed to provide a gripping tale of Medieval life with the story of gunpowder. It is a Stockwin page turner that further enhances his reputation. This is not a book to miss, with its thrills and spills, joys and sorrows, another best seller.
