    Watched the first one Bill. Whilst not informing me of anything of which I was not already aware it did pot the percentages of each into perspective even if this may only be typical of Constitution at that moment in time it is enough to work on. Now if only I had an equivalent treatise on the Royal Navy to compare with that excellent one.
    Will watch the rest tomorrow if time permits.
    Once again thanks for the heads up.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.
