Maritime Dominion and the Triumph of the Free World Summary


Maritime Dominion and the Triumph of the Free World by Peter Padfield

Freedom of expression and individual enterprise have distinguished the societies of powers dominant at sea; and since supreme maritime nations have prevailed over their territorial rivals in the great wars of the modern era, it is they who have created today's world. In this final volume of his masterful trilogy, Peter Padfield carries the theme through the terrible wars of the last century to the present, 'offering up sea battles as vivid as any you will find in Patrick O'Brien' (Wall Street Journal).

'Ambitious, hugely enjoyable ... this lucid, passionately argued and beautifully written history ranks among the finest of recent times' -- Saul David, Sunday Times 'Padfield's latest work ... reaches heights of brilliance, combining thrilling narrative with razor-sharp insights into underlying historical trends ... a joy to read' -- BBC History Magazine 'Exceptional author ... there will not be a better book on Britain's naval campaigns' -- Oxford Times 'Excellent trilogy' -- Good Book Guide 'So much more than a book about naval encounters, offering a rich social history that shows how world power is directly related to a nation's seafaring activity ...

About Peter Padfield


Peter Padfield was born in British India but educated in England. After service as a navigating officer in P&O liners to India and Australia, he sailed in the replica seventeenth-century bark, Mayflower II, on her recreation of the Pilgrim Fathers' voyage. Subsequently he worked a passage to the Pacific and sailed local craft in the Solomon Islands. He has since made his name as a naval historian. The second volume of this present trilogy earned him the Mountbatten Maritime Prize.
