From HMS Mary Fortune to the Henri Grâce à Dieu, the high seas and the ships which rode them have played a key role in writing European history. This work explores not only the 14th and 15th-century construction and naval actions of such vessels, but also the political and economic factors which developed their form.

Author Biography:
David James grew up in Pembroke Dock, South West Wales, and still lives nearby. With the assistance of the Milford Haven Port Authority, he organises biannual events around the waterway on a voluntary basis, for which he received an award in 2010. His other accolades include being a founder member of the Friends of the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich; his position as Secretary of the West Wales Maritime Heritage Society; a seat on the Council of MOROL, the Institute of Welsh Maritime History Studies; and having written several books on maritime history, including Down the Slipway: Ships of Pembrokeshires Secret Waterway, Of Monks and Seawolves and A History of Nash and Upton Parishes. When time permits, he also promotes Welsh maritime history at home and abroad.
