Looks like one to add to the shopping list :)

For more in-depth reading I would strongly suggest anything by Robert Malcolmson, especially "Lords of the lakes", "HMS Detroit" and "Warships of the Great Lakes". All make excellent reading.

My mistake. I just checked and it must have been the Osprey site I was on when I saw this book.

Got me there Steve, I only keep a list of napoleonic/french rev period so this one slipped through. I think they have or are about to do Anglo-Dutch War ships as well

Today arrived British Napoleonic Ship-of-the-Line.

Only 48 pages but the HMS Victory's cutway artwork and other drawings are really nice
