Throughout I have endeavoured to give as much detailed informati on as possible, but have purposely refrained from any discussion of the reasons or lessons of the various operations. This is where my treatment of the subject differs from that of Vice-Admiral Kirchoff in his 'Seemacht in der Ostsee.' He deals with the greater part of the period more or less from the point of view adopted by Captain Mahan in his works on general naval history, while I have tried to follow more in the footsteps of James, and givefacts without commen." -from the Preface.

April 23, 1697, Staffordshire - d.June 6, 1762, Moor Park, Hertfordshire). "The career of Admiral Lord Anson heralded the most glorious epoch in the history of the Royal Navy. He was the first of the great eighteenth century admirals, preceding Rodney, Howe,St. Vincent and finally Nelson, whose mighty victory at Trafalgar set the seal on a process which was based not only on those qualities of seamanship, command and heroism which they all, without exception, possessed, but equally important, on the reorganization of the navy itself. [...] Anson was asailor in the tradition of Drake and Hawkins and his early life reads like the saga of a successful buccaneer. When in 1740 he was sent to harry the Spanish American possessions, he achieved not only this specific objective,but came home, after an epic voyage of circumnavigation involving terrible losses and setbakcs surmounted through leadership and resolve, with the ri chest prize cargo in history. [...] Later he was appointed to the Admiralty, where he served, with only a short break, from 1745 until his death in 1762, eventually becoming First Lord. In this capacity he introduced many reforms, salvaging the Navy from its moribund state and earning for himself the title 'Father of the Navy'." - from the dustjacket.
