Dr. Ballhausen's book After having criticized Dr. Ballhausen's book (for good reason), I find that I am referring to it frequently, while preparing scenarios for the First Anglo-Dutch War battles. First, he has maps that show the wind direction, which is a critical fact. Second, for the Dutch, he shows the fleet organization, at least for the Battle of Plymouth and the Battle of the Kentish Knock. I need to revisit the Battle off Dover, and see if he has any guidance for the organization, in that battle.
