Synopsis

At a time when the Royal Navy was the biggest and best in the world, Georgian London was the hub of this immense industrial-military complex, underpinning and securing a global trading empire that was entirely dependent on the navy for its existence. Philip MacDougall explores the bureaucratic web that operated within the wider city area before giving attention to London's association with the practical aspects of supplying and manning the operational fleet and shipbuilding, repair and maintenance. His supremely detailed geographical exploration of these areas includes a discussion of captivating key personalities, buildings and work. The book examines significant locations as well as the importance of Londoners in the manning of ships and how the city memorialised the navy and its personnel during times of victory. An in-depth gazetteer and walking guide complete this fascinating study of Britain, her capital and her Royal Navy.



PHILIP MACDOUGALL has written extensively on both naval dockyards and the Medway Towns with a history of Chatham Dockyard. He is a founding member of the Naval Dockyards Society, closely linked with the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich, and he has travelled and researched extensively visiting state-owned dockyards (both British and foreign) in Europe and the Americas. He has previously written A Century of Chatham, Chatham Dockyard and Chatham Past for The History Press. He lives in Chichester.
