Overview

The Office of Ordnance has been ill-served by previous accounts of its role in arming the Royal Navy during the French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars. Cole offers an in-depth examination of its organizational structure and demonstrates how the department responded to the pressures of war over an extended period of time.

This book is totally researched and is an excellent read. I could not put it down. I highly recommend this book it one is interested in organization, how government is sustained and how armed forces are supplied in the 1700. A real student gem
