All About Guns War

Rowing for War: The Age of the Galley & Sailing to War: The Age of the Ship of the Line

In my humble opinion, it took a huge amount of guts to go down the sea as a fighting man. What with unsanitary living space, so so food, savage discipline, the high chance of having a sadistic & maybe insane Captain.

Plus ships make for a huge target / lead magnet and if you get hurt or wounded its best to not think of what will happen to you. I will also not get into the issue of possible cannibalism if your ships sinks and you make it to a life boat.

So it all makes for me to say that I am so grateful to have been a soldier instead. Grumpy
