Outside your stated period, but do you have any recommendations on naval history (British) for the later part of the 17th century and very beginning of the 18th?
For reasons too complicated to go into, I am pursuing this line at the moment. I don't normally do the wars/battles being more interesting in causation and consequences (I was educated in an all girls' school so that is not so surprising) but as I grew up in and around Portsmouth, I do have rather more background in naval affairs than other military matters and I have a particular interest in the English navy from the Interregnum to the end of Queen Anne's reign.
