Galleons and Galleys, by John F. Guilmartin, Jr.


“Between the mid fourteenth century and the mid seventeenth, the harnessing of gunpowder weapons for use afloat fundamentally altered the balance of power throughout the world. Warfare at sea progressed from compartmentalized, drawn out, and generally indecisive local conflicts to struggles in which the stakes were huge and outcomes often hung a thread. The principal agents of change were the war galley and galleon.”
