Excerpt from The Major Operations of the Navies in the War of American Independence
The contents of this volume were first contributed as a chapter, under the title of Major Operations, 1762 to the History of the Royal Navy, in seven volumes, pub lished by Messrs. Sampson Low, Marston, and Company, under the general editorship of the late Sir William Laird Clowes. For permission to republish now in this separate form, the author has to express his thanks to the publishers of that work.
In the Introduction following this Preface, the author has summarized the general lesson to be derived from the course of this War of American Independence, as distinct from the particular discussion and narration of the several events which constitute the body of the treatment, These lessons he conceives to carry admonition for the present and future based upon the surest foundations; namely, upon the experi ence of the past as applicable to present conditions. The essential similarity between the two is evident in a common dependence upon naval strength.
