Descripton: From the publisher
Although not officially sanctioned until 1954, battle honors have been granted to Royal Navy ships and the Royal Marines for actions dating back to the Spanish Armada in 1588. This volume serves as both a valuable work of reference and an interesting narrative, as each engagement for which a Royal Navy or Royal Marine honor has been granted is described in a concise account, amounting to a complete work of British military history. All periods are covered from 1588 to the recent campaigns in the Falklands and Persian Gulf.
