Better book than the title suggests,

This review is from: Storm and Conquest: The Battle for the Indian Ocean, 1808-10 (Kindle Edition)
I bought this book on a deal and put it to the bottom of the plié thinking I'd keep it in case I ran out of everything else. I'm so pleased I got around to reading it and regretted I'd waited so long.Its a gripping and fascinating tale of empire building and adventure. Not just looking at the military side, but also wives and families involved. It real is a page turner and I was sorry when it was finished. It read a bit like a Hornblower novel - except in this case it's true.
