I thought for sure there was a thread on this, but I can't find it. So I have created a new one.

So far I have compelted the first 9 chapters, as described below. I just decided to split the naval information into two cahpters, one for naval review and movement and the other for naval combat. Covering all that material in one chapter would probably make it run over an hour, which is a threshold I do not want to cross.

As always, I am open to comments on the outline I present below.
