Looks new. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. From a review " Excellent overall. Mostert deals mainly with naval conflicts during the Great War, but of course that cannot be done properly without discussing the military campaigns happening on land at the same time, which he does adequately. I bought this book hoping to learn about Admiral Nelson, and Mostert provides a vivid picture of the man which includes excerpts from his correspondence. In fact, the book is full of pieces from writings of the time, including accounts by common seamen. One also gets to know what Napoleon was up to on land at this time, and I learned enough about the Emperor to glimpse his depth and genius as well as his driving mania. If you are fascinated by the "nuts and bolts" of wooden ships, buy this book."; Photographs, Maps; 9.40 X 6.20 X 2.30 inches; 800 pages
