'I never knew that' - you'll say it again and again. A great book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Billy Ruffian: The Bellerophon and the Downfall of Napoleon (Hardcover)
I thought I knew something of the history of the Napoleonic era but this stunningly clever angle, following the building of one of the great ships that took part in the Battle of Trafalgar, and which eventually brought the Adolf Hitler of the day, back to Britain in captivity, is a breathtaking read. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
