William James was a 19th-century British naval historian who wrote numerous military history texts. One of his best works was ‘The Naval History of Great Britain’ which was written in response to many of the perspectives on the War of 1812. James was highly critical of British Captain Edward Brenton, who wrote a history of British naval warfare that seemed to be both unreliable and heavily biased.

 

This impressive, five-volume set includes a folding map of the formation of British naval fleets.
