Post Richard Woodman: Masters under God
The third volume in Richard Woodman's series on the history of the British merchant navy is called "Masters under God. Makers of Empire: 1816-1884". It is reviewed in the Traditional Boats & Tall Ships Magazine web-site.

Hi Martin,

Have you read this book? If so, what did you think?

Sorry, Susan, but I have not seen a copy yet. I merely noticed the review in the Trad Boats & Tall Ships web-site, and though that SN members might like to see it. Richard Woodman is a good writer (his books on the WW2 convoys are detailed and thorough) and he is also a good speaker, with practical experience on sailing ships. I was a guest at a meeting of the Mariners International Club in 2008 where he gave a very well illustrated lecture on the heyday of the commercial sailing ship.

Thanks, Martin. It does sound like a book I need to read at some point.

I've enjoyed Woodman's Drinkwater series and have read his book The Sea Warriors.
