 Famed as a classic naval duel, a one-on-one clash between two sailing frigates offered the victor immeasurable fame and glory. During the War of 1812, the Royal Navy and United States Navy squared off in four such duels, the most famous that between the USS Constitution and HMS Guerrière. Ships and tactics between the two nations varied enormously, with the American navy favouring a revolutionary design of frigate, with twenty-four pounder guns and heavy structural timbers, while the British, used to fighting the French and Spanish navies, relied on smaller, eighteen-pounder frigates. Through first-hand accounts of these four single-ship actions and fascinating comparisons of artillery, crew ability and tactical achievements, this book offers an unparalleled insight into the ruthless reality of frigate battles in the War of 1812.

 Late in the morning on 21 October 1805, warships from the British and combined French and Spanish fleets clashed off Cape Trafalgar on the Spanish coast. After a six month game of cat and mouse across the Atlantic, 27 British ships of the line engaged the Allied force of 33 ships of the line. This was a duel of skill, tenacity and bravery as captains and crews battled for mastery of the seas. This book is an opportunity to relive the action at Trafalgar - read the accounts of sailors who were there, and who experienced the sound of scraping cutlasses and bombarding cannons at one of the most important naval engagements of history. Understand how the guns were operated, learn about the training of crews and study the design and development of the incredible ships which dominated naval warfare of the period, as Gregory Fremont-Barnes reveals the revolutionary tactics used by Nelson to secure a victory that saved Britain from the threat of invasion and ensured British naval dominance for over a century.

 The clash between the American Bonhomme Richard and the British HMS Serapis during the American Revolutionary War is perhaps the most famous single-ship duel in history. This epic battle between two very similar ships – and crews – off the coast of Britain in September 1779 created two naval heroes: in victory, John Paul Jones became a figure that all future American naval officers would aspire to emulate, while Richard Pearson, in defeat, became a hero to the British for a tenacious defence that allowed the merchant vessels under his protection to escape. Featuring specially commissioned full-color artwork, this is the story of an epic maritime clash at the height of the Revolutionary War that provided a founding legend for generations of US naval officers and demonstrated the intrepidity and fighting prowess of the fledgling US Navy

 Жан Бодрио первым начал серьезно и систематически изучать сохранившиеся модели и исследовать архивы в каждом французском порту. Он ничего не пропускал: ни теоретические труды, ни ценные документы чертежников того времени, ни заметки неизвестных инженеров на полях тетрадей, ни сметы мастеров-плотников, ни инвентарные записи складов. Boudriot в своих работах и выводах опирался только на неопровержимые документы: архивные чертежи, конструкции, походные и экипировочные сметы, письма и манускрипты того времени. Основываясь на своем таланте чертежника и на архитектурном образовании, Jean Boudriot уверяет, что только через чертежи можно исследовать и понять морскую историю. Его скрупулезные колдовские линии имеют легко узнаваемый стиль, погружая читателя в атмосферу 17, 18 или 19 веков.

 In the book detailing the basics of building models of sailing ships, various technologies and tools. The text is accompanied by a large number of explanatory drawings.
This book is filled with exceedingly useful information. Its only drawback is that it recommends using what are now outdated materials by current practice. The largest difference is that Mr. Porter advocates using balsa wood where more currtnt books advise basswood. But it is an easy leap to make to more modern practice. His conversion charts are are very helpful.

 The rigging of period ship models is arguably the most complex and daunting task for the modeler. An eighteenth-century man-of-war boasted mile upon mile of rigging, over 1,000 blocks, and acres of canvas. To reduce the rigging in scale and yet retain an accurate representation is a formidable undertaking. This follow-up to Lennarth Petersson s highly successful Rigging Period Ship Models does for fore-and-aft rig what his earlier book did for square rig. Taking as examples a French eighteenth-century lugger, an English cutter, and an American schooner, Petersson demonstrated in beautifully drawn diagrams how each item of both the standing and running rigging is fitted, led and belayed. A must for all period modelers and all those with an interest in historic sailing ships.

 The 17th and 18th centuries witnessed the rise of fighting sailing navies, which became instruments of worldwide strategic power. Spain, Holland, France, and Britain were the leading protagonists; after the eclipse of the first two, the struggle for domination at sea revolved chiefly into a Franco-British conflict, culminating in Britain's maritime triumph in the Napoleonic Wars. Lambert shows how Britain's naval dominance was achieved, with detailed accounts of key conflicts that reveal both the highest levels of strategy and the experience of the ordinary sailor.

 The turn of the 16th century saw the start of a revolution in sea warfare--one long in the making but, once begun, remarkably swift. The driving force: gunpowder. The principal agents: galleys (long, low boats propelled principally by oars) and galleons (heavy, square rigged sailing ships). Suddenly, Europe, formerly on a technological par with India and China, dominated the waters. They crossed the Atlantic, reached America, and became world powers. A beautifully written account of the age conveys exactly how a country like Portugal could establish outposts from South America to the Pacific, how Christian fleets wrested control of the Mediterranean from the Ottoman Empire, and why the "invincible" Spanish armada met with disaster in its attempt to invade England. A vivid page-turner.

 The recent publication by this Society, of Skip Models: How to Build Them, written by Charles G. Davis, a naval architect of unusual practical experience in the building of ships and also ship models, at once resulted in a demand for additional information on this fascinating subject. Not content with building a block model, a greater knowledge of ships developed a desire for information on the fram­ing of the "built-up" model. Ship model builders in all parts of the country required details on the deck furniture of various types of vessels at different periods and also on the thousand and one things that the ship builder and rigger must know in order to practice his craft.
