All of the product for the Anglo-Dutch Wars has been added to the store. From the Rod Langton website:

“The Anglo Dutch wars were a series of three vicious naval wars fought between Britain and Holland during the latter part of the 17th century.

Although the vessels were less efficient than later broadside armed sailing warships, in many ways these battles were a precursor to those leading to Trafalgar. Signalling by flag and gun and the use of fleet tactics would enable actions involving sometimes 90 ships per side.

Initial battles were commanded by Generals at sea but by the end of the period, the term ‘Admiral’ and the division of Vice, Rear and Full Admirals of the Red, White and Blue were in full use.”
