Description - Renaissance War Galley 1470-1590 by Angus Konstam

For most of the Renaissance period, naval warfare in the Mediterranean was dominated by the war galley, a unique naval vessel for a momentous age. During the struggle for supremacy between Christian and Muslim powers, war galleys formed the backbone of the rival battlefleets. Different regions of the Mediterranean produced their own versions of the war galley, thereby producing a number of variants on the basic design tailored to the needs and resources of particular nations. This title examines the development of the war galley from its classically inspired resurrection in the 15th century until its demise in the early 17th century.
