    Thanks for getting in touch Russell! I would encourage you to read some primary sources to get a real feel for what is going on. If it is naval history you are interested in, you simply can’t do better than Admiral Pasley’s Journals. The Navy Records Society’s Logs of the Great Sea Fights is where I started. And James Cook’s journals are astonishing.
