This work addresses the development of warfare at sea during the pivotal early phases of Europe's rise to world domination between the 14th and the 17th centuries. It describes the challenge of harnessing human muscle power, the force of the wind and the energy of gunpowder to create effective fighting ships. The author begins with an examination of the geographic and technological realities of warfare at sea. The human dimension is also addressed, showing how distinct attitudes, beliefs and ambitions played a crucial role in shaping events. Throughout, key developments are illustrated with narrative accounts of wars, campaigns and battles chosen for their strategic importance.
