Fighting Instructions, 1530-1816

Fighting Instructions, 1530-1816
by Julian S. Corbett

Publisher: Navy Records Society 1905
ISBN/ASIN: 1406918741
Number of pages: 400

Description:
The discovery of a number of seventeenth century Instructions amongst the Earl of Dartmouth's papers, which he had generously placed at the disposal of the Society, seemed to encourage an attempt to make something like a complete collection. The result, such as it is, is now offered to the Society. It is by no means exhaustive. Some sets of Instructions seem to be lost beyond recall; but, on the other hand, a good deal of hitherto barren ground has been filled, and it is hoped that the collection may be of some assistance for a fresh study of the principles which underlie the development of naval tactics.
