Another writing project for someone
A writing and research project for someone would be to produce a book, somewhat along the lines of Frank Fox's book, Great Ships: the Battlefleet of King Charles II. The differences would be that the new book would be about Dutch warships in the 17th Century and perhaps beyond, and would be a combination of Frank Fox's book and David Lyon's book, The Sailing Navy List: All the Ships of the Royal Navy: Built, Purchased and Captured, 1688-1860. Alternatively, the Dutch warship history could be divided into periods and separate volumes, published over time. That is what Rif Winfield is doing for the English and British navies. Rif's first book in the series is titled: BRITISH WARSHIPS IN THE AGE OF SAIL 1793-1817 Design, Construction, Careers and Fates.
