THE BRITISH ADMIRALTY by Leslie Gardiner: Naval Administration has been a rather neglected branch of naval studies, but the Admiralty evolved to manage the Royal Navy, which enforced Britain’s foreign policy and created an Empire. Gardiner explains the political machinations and the resultant, mostly successful, outcomes of a navy, which until recent years, was the most formidable in the world.
