Naval Social History section: This covers any period where the subject matter is social history or, as in particular memoirs; there is material relevant to the subject. On occasions other navies are featured, not just the Royal Navy.
This is a link to a selection of books for sale at camberpete's site about Seamanship, Pilotage and local knowledge of the English Channel and the Solent area.
The Nelson page provides icons, usually adapted from the the covers, as links to books with Admiral Lord Nelson as the subject, a battle in which he played a prominent part or a warship associated with him or if of particular merit, a book  that refers particularily to his period.
In this site this icon, adapted from the front of this book, and originally from a portrait miniature of Drake, by Nicholas Hilliard in 1581, is used as a link to ‘A page of books about drake'.

This is predominately a text based page but the contents listed here are repeated in the form of icons,
mostly, where possible, based on the book's jacket front - CLICK HERE FOR IMAGE BASED PAGE.

Although, hopefully most of the 'Sailing Navy' books are listed here.
there are other pages where they are grouped together in different categories so some may have been omitted.
Icons above are links to those pages throughout the site.
