Showing the complex interaction of strategy, logistics, administration, and economics, Syrett's pioneering text brings to light some basic causes for the ultimate failure of the British war effort during the American War of Independence. This war effort was fatally compromised by the British need to support a great army and a large naval force in the western hemisphere while at the same time facing a coalition of maritime powers on the European continent.

The crucial contribution of seapower to the struggle for American independence forms the theme for this volume, drawing on published prints, maps and illustrated journals of the time to achieve a remarkable impression of the maritime aspects of the war, in all its variety and drama. But besides the campaigns, battles and sieges, the book also illustrates many significant background aspects of the war, in the form of thematic inserts on such subjects as the ship types, the weapons and the organisation involved. The result is not just a visually exciting collection of contemporary images, many previously unpublished, but a valuable contribution to the understanding of how the American Revolution was seen at the time.

Presented here is a view of the American Revolution which differs radically from the prevailing notion that it came about as a result of a high-minded search for principles. Instead, Professor Martin believes that the Revolution was a far more complex affair than the simple defence of liberty against the British and a search for Republican ideals and that the results of the Revolution had even greater long term effects on the development of a national identity than the immediate realisation of independence.

Between 1890 and 1913, Captain Alfred Thayer Mahan published a series of books on naval warfare in the age of sail, which established his reputation as the founder of modern strategic history. But, according to former Guggenheim Fellow Jon Tetsuro Sumida, Mahan did not advocate national naval supremacy, but instead believed that a multinational naval consortium could best defend international trade.
