Award-winning maritime author Richard Woodman has already two dozen novels to his name. With the recently released Neptune's Trident, Spices and Slaves:1500-1807 from The History Press, Woodman restores Great Britain's mercantile marine to its rightful place in the nation's history.
The book offers a detailed account of a forgotten aspect of British history that was full of both risk and adventure and skull-duggery and piracy. This first of five volumes takes the reader from the emergence of Tudor England on the world stage to the end of the Seven Years War in 1763 and has a foreword by HRH The Princess Royal.
An intelligently written and engaging account of a fascinating part of British maritime history. We will be reviewing the book more thoroughly in a future edition of the magazine and we are hoping to be able to secure an article by Richard Woodman, so watch for updates.
