The Naval Miscellany, Volume VIII

Edited by Brian Vale

  • Description
This book will be useful for students and researchers to gain an insight to several examples of key events in the history of the Royal Navy. The contents of this, the eighth of the Navy Records Society’s Miscellany series, chronicles the activities and adventures of the Royal Navy, its officials, its officers and its men – both in British employment and out of it – over a period of some six hundred years. Encompassing a broad scope of operations, naval policy and logistics this volume highlights key episodes from the rich tapestry of Britain’s naval history. Ranging from the reign of Edward III to that of Edward VIII, chapters by guest editors include accounts from the Office of the Clerk of the King's ships in the mid 14th century, documents for the last campaign of the Mary Rose in 1545, enforcement of the Stamp Act 1764-65, and the Royal Navy's Blockades of the U.S. in the 1812 War, the Brazian Navy in 1826; response to criticisms of Naval preparedness in 1885; and the Royal Navy’s role in escorting Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia into exile in 1936.
