This prejudiced view has gone unchallenged in modern naval history, but this new book reveals the crucial role of the 50-gun ship in the development of both the battleship and the frigate, and explains the enduring role which ensured the survival of the type into the nineteenth century.

True to the intentions of the ‘ShipShape’ series, it is the first extended study of a type which is both technically interesting and historically undervalued.
