Broadside: The Influence of Sea Power on History is an upcoming documentary about the Age of Sail, the court of Charles II, a young Dutch republic and various naval conflicts. Broadside is currently under production and does not have a firm release date for the United States, but the website is definitely worth your attention. Free videos on the site cover various aspects of sailing, politics and naval strategy. The links page has a nice collection of links to various museums and historical web sites. I highly suggest checking out the Pepy’s Diary site. It gives an interesting view into the day to day life of 17th century England. Fascinating stuff and an all around a great resource for a naval role-playing campaign.
