Description

In this paperback of his acclaimed and wide-ranging study, David Scott challenges traditional assumptions about how Britain achieved her global might.
Shortlisted for the Duke of Westminster Medal for Military Literature 2013

Navigating the 300 years between the Tudor accession and the loss of the American colonies Leviathan charts one of history?s greatest transformations: the rise of Britain as the world?s most formidable maritime power. From the chaos of the Wars of the Roses, Henry VIII?s split with Rome and Oliver Cromwell?s Parliamentary regime, David Scott?s masterly narrative explodes traditional assumptions to present a much darker interpretation of this extraordinary story.

Powered by a rapidly growing navy, a rapacious merchant marine, resilient politics, bigotry and religious fanaticism, warmongering and slavery, this candid book is required reading for all those wishing to understand how Britain achieved her global might...
