NAVAL LEADERSHIP IN THE ATLANTIC WORLD

NAVAL LEADERSHIP IN THE ATLANTIC WORLD

UWP’s second title was recently published, a comparative set of studies exploring the topic of Naval Leadership in the period 1700-1850. Editors Richard Harding and Agustín Guimerá assembled scholars from France, Spain and the UK who collectively scrutinised the social characteristics and visions of respective naval leaders as a new understanding of the individual and society was taking hold across Europe. Amongst the topics covered are the reputation of Louis XV’s Vice-Admirals, the effectiveness of the British Royal Navy in the eighteenth century and the French Navy during Revolution and Empire. Amongst the leaders specifically considered are Admiral Louis Guillouet, Comte d’Orvilliers, Le Bailli Pierre-André de Suffren ( a precursor of Nelson), Admiral Antonio Barceló, José de Mazarredo and John Jervis.
