Gunpowder and Galleys is an expert analysis of the struggle between Christian Europe and Ottoman Turkey for control of the Mediterranean in the 16th century.
Building on a thorough analysis of changing maritime technology, this study provides an outstanding examination of the sea wars between the Ottoman Empire and its christian opponents, and illustrates the crucial interaction between commerce and warfare in the 16th century Mediterranean. It describes how the strategic considerations in galley warfare were substantially different from those in campaigns involving galleons or ships of the line, and includes detailed descriptions of all the major actions in the Mediterranean and around the Arabian peninsula.
