Editorial Reviews

Wall Street Journal
Mr. Padfield's outstanding book [Maritime Supremacy] is an attempt... to show how maritime power has affected not only geo-politics but also governing principles. Along the way, he offers up naval campaigns and sea battles as vivid as any you will find in Patrick O'Brien.
Navy News
