Nelson's Trafalgar signal 'England Expects' has for centuries set the tone for England's accepted primacy in the naval history of Great Britain. Let it be so. But the prominent role of Wales and Welshmen in the long story of British maritime endeavour has been long neglected. Wales has now found its champion in Dr David Davies, a Llanelli-born naval historian of international standing. His book rebalances and recalibrates the record and provides a belated account of the prominent part played by Wales and its men in British maritime history. I have read this book twice from cover to cover and it is quite outstanding. Highly recommended.

Excellent history of the role Welshmen have played in British Naval history. I was particularly taken with the anecdote of the boy who met Nelson when he (Nelson) visited their family inn and as he was interested in joining the Navy, Nelson told him to contact him when older. The lad did that and was in fact on the bridge when Nelson was shot. Fascinating book and a great gift for my Naval Officer son
