about

Georgian London was the hub of the world’s largest industrial-military complex, underpinning and securing a global trading empire that was entirely dependent on the Royal Navy for its existence. Philip MacDougall explores the bureaucratic web that operated within the wider city area before giving attention to London’s association with the practical aspects of supplying and manning the operational fleet and shipbuilding, repair and maintenance. His detailed geographical exploration of these areas includes a discussion of key personalities, buildings and work. The book examines significant locations as well as the importance of Londoners in the manning of ships and how the city memorialised the navy and its personnel during times of victory. A gazetteer and walking guide complete this fascinating study.
