An absorbing and important volume. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW
Old records and modern technology have been brought to bear with notable effect... revisionist and inspirational, it will certainly add a great deal to current knowledge and do much to direct investigations in this field for a long time to come. BIBLIOTHEQUE D'HUMANISME ET RENAISSANCE
Worthy of a place on the bookshelves of any serious naval or maritime historian. DE RE MILITARI
The Introduction by Hattendorf is a must-read for all naval historians.... But the real value of this work is in the overall picture created by the component parts: that of a period in which many different forms of war at sea existed outside the traditional historical interpretation of "naval war". HISTORY
The individual essays without exception are admirable pieces of scholarship. INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF MARITIME HISTORY
