Outstanding!, 31 Dec. 2013
Sam Willis is a very talented writer. I just finished his latest work "In The Hour Of Victory - The Royal Navy at War in the Age of Nelson". It's been a while since I've come across such a fluid and vivid style of storytelling. I found myself slowing things down towards the end of the book - re-reading pages and cross-checking facts with earlier passages in the book - the way you save the best stuff on your plate as 'dessert' for later on... It's a terrific book worth reading if you're at all interested in the age of sail. Well done Sam.
