Riassunto: "So little care there hath been to this day to know or keep any history of the Navy." Samuel Pepys, 16 January 1668. The Royal Navy Day by Day is a fascinating record of British naval heritage. It is preserved here as a diary of daily events - not just of great battles, but of all that has built the Royal Navy's 700-year-old tradition. While so many books of naval history concentrate on the big events, The Royal Navy Day by Day examines also the conditions that sailors, Royal Marines and naval aircrew, as well as Army and RAF forces involved in sea and amphibious operations, have experienced in peacetime as well as war.
The First Edition, published in 1979, was substantially revised in 1992 following the Royal Navy's significant involvement in the Falklands and the First Gulf War. This completely re-illustrated Third Edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to include the Royal Navy's heavy involvement in peacekeeping and offensive actions worldwide since 1992.
