"I have dealt with the subject in detail from the year 1563 to the end of the Napoleonic wars in 1815, and have, for the sake of completeness, sketched in outline the course of events between 1522 and 1563 and between 1815and 1850. 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.
