The Command of the Ocean describes with unprecedented authority and scholarship the rise of Britain to naval greatness, and the central place of the Navy and naval activity in the life of the nation and government. Based on the author's own research in half a dozen languages over nearly a decade, and synthesising a vast quantity of secondary material, it describes not just battles and cruises but how the Navy was manned, how it was supplied with timber, hemp and iron, how its men (and sometimes women) were fed, and above all how it was financed and directed. It was during the century and a half covered by this book that the successful organising of these last three victualling, money and management took the Navy to the heart of the British state.

Easy to read survey of the height of British sea power. The scholarship is extraordinary, and thankfully it is combined with an ability to write in the English tongue. It goes far to explain not only the power of the 18th and 19th Century Royal Navy, but also the strengths and the rise of Great Britain. ( )

The alternative title for this work could be "The Impact of Politics and Social Change on the Royal Navy," as Rodger argues that without the need to secure religious liberty and Parliment's ultimate adoption of the fleet it is unlikely that the will would have been found to develop the service most symbolic of Britain, with additional profound results for the building of the British state and the evolution of British society. Which is to say that Protectorate and Restoration England, as authoritarian polities, were not unusual in creating efficient naval power on the fly, but it would seem to take a society-wide commitment to sustain such naval power. This you can learn from reading the conclusions, the rest of the work is a exhaustively detailed examination of the contingincies encountered on the way to the zenith of British naval power. ( )

To pretend to Universal Monarchy without Fleets was long since looked upon, as a politick chimaera . . . whoever commands the ocean, commands the trade of the world, and whoever commands the trade of the world, commands the riches of the world, and whoever is master of that, commands the world itself.

John Evelyn, Navigation and Commerce,
their Origin and Progress (London, 1674), pp. 15-17 and 32-3.
