Napoleonic And Naval History is a blog about the age of sail and the age of revolutions.
Content revolves around the author’s favourite parts of history, so posts may stray from that main theme from time to time.
Some great books that are frequently used as sources include:
- Naval Miscellany by Angus Konstam
- To War With Wellington by Peter Snow
- The entire Richard Sharpe series by Bernard Cornwell; these books sparked my interest in the Napoleonic Wars and I find myself constantly referencing historical information from these books.
- Master and Commander (and its accompanying series) by Patrick O’Brian; which sparked my interest in the naval side of the spectrum.
- Vienna 1814 by David King
- History’s Greatest Hits by Joseph Cummins
- The Mental Floss History of the World by Eric Sass and Steve Wiegand with Will Pearson and Mangesh Hattikudor
- Great Battles General Editor: Christer Jorgensen
- Horatio Nelson and His Victory by Philip Reeve
- Battle At Sea by R.G Grant
- The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Warfare by R.G Grant
- Breverton’s Nautical Curiosities by Terry Breverton
- Manual of Seamanship for Boys and Seaman of the Royal Navy, 1904 by Lieutenant Cecil H. Fox, R.N.
