Life in the ENGLISH Navy,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Forever Leftenant Rundel (The Rundel Series Book 5) (Kindle Edition)
If you like a "boys adventure book" you may enjoy the Rundel series but if you wonder where the rest of the British Isles features in the English Navy this is a mystery series.
Picture an 18th century BRITISH sailor in Napoleonic times standing in line, trousers held up by suspenders waiting for his pay in pounds and pence, and wondering when he can visit with his friends ashore who are a ways off!
I guess he sure is lucky to have been helped with his Math and Ciphering.
Was Nelson really shot by a sniper with rifle?
The books are neither grammatically nor historically correct. Stick to Bolitho, Hornblower or Sharpe if you prefer English as a language and a semblance of historical fact.
