The forum post about rams from naval vessels has inspired me to list the books on naval warfare in my collection. Are there any good ones I have missed?

"The Athenian Trireme "  J.S. Morrison/ J.F. Coates / N.B. Rankov

"Gunpowder & Galleys"  J.F. Guilmartin

"Warfleets of Antiquity"  R.B. Nelson

"Oared Fighting Ships"  R.C. Anderson

"The Age of the Galley"  editor Robert Gardiner

"Greek & Roman Naval Warfare"  W.L. Rodgers

" Naval Warfare under oars"  W.L. Rodgers

"Building the Trireme" by Frank Welsh is the only one I own not on that list. Hasn't Guilmartin done another volume on galleys? Also are there any pre-Armada Ospreys worth getting?

I have Guilmartins "Galleons & Galleys" - it is well illustrated as is the only Osprey (Renaissance War Galley)that I have. Both are worth getting.
