Naval Construction in the Works of Rafael Monleon Torres gives a complete history of boat construction, from the primitive boats of the Nile in Ancient Egypt, through to the British battleships of the late 19th century.

The author examines the progress made by the Romans, and the Scandinavians in the late-10th century. It was in the mid-17th century that warships began to engage in battle in an organised and tactical manner, and the authors explore the effects this had on boat construction.
