The Navy in India, 1763-1783
Sir Herbert Richmond
In this work, originally published in 1931, Richmond, a noted naval historian, sought to encourage modern mariners to learn from the tactics employed by the British East India Company in tackling their Dutch and French rivals around the Indian coasts in the 18th century. The naval engagements cemented the Company's rule in the region, leading to its heyday in the half century before its winding up. 430 pages with maps, appendices and an index.
