    As a starter I recommend Peter Hore (ed), Seapower Ashore: 200 years of Royal Navy operations on land (London, 2001). The cover picture shows a siege battery set up ashore by the RN in Dalmatia in 1813, the guns being on naval carriages, and the rest of the book is worth a read.

    Robert Gardiner, The Campaign of Trafalgar (London, 1997) reproduces many of Eckstein’s excellent engravings of HM Sloop of War Diamond Rock, & has a good section on that remarkable achievement.
