Renaissance War Galley 1470–1590 (Osprey)

For most of the Renaissance period, naval warfare in the Mediterranean was dominated by the war galley, a unique naval vessel for a momentous age. During the struggle for supremacy between Christian and Muslim powers, war galleys formed the backbone of the rival battlefleets. Different regions of the Mediterranean produced their own versions of the war galley, thereby producing a number of variants on the basic design tailored to the needs and resources of particular nations.

This book examines the development of the war galley from its classically inspired resurrection in the 15th century until its demise in the early 17th century, providing the first ever in-depth study of this remarkable war machine.

Contents: Introduction - The Development of the Mediterreanean War Galley - Ordnance - Galley Types - Galley Construction- Logistics and Organisation - Tactics - Bibliography - Colour Plate Commentary - Index.

Pirate Ship 1660-1730 (Osprey)

The deeds and personalities of famous pirates have received significant attention in recent years: however, no detailed depiction of their vessels has ever been produced.
This title redresses the imbalance, conducting a detailed exploration of the wide variety of pirate vessels that sailed the high seas during the 'golden age' of piracy (1690-1730), from gun-bristling warships to smaller craft such as sloops, brigantines and early schooners. It incorporates the latest archaeological evidence to produce a fascinating account of these vessels, detailing their origins, development and tactical engagement.

Packed with contemporary illustrations and superbly detailed colour artwork, the ships of the 'golden age' are brought vividly to life.

Contents: Introduction - The design of the ideal pirate ship - The origins of the pirate ships - The conversion of a prize - Small pirate vessels - Pirate flagships - The pirate ship in action - Glossary - Bibliography - Colour plate commentary - Index.
