Book purchased as part of series by this author. Fully matched expectations as an excellent fast-growing story of life in Nelson's navy. Characters well drawn and believable. As worthy successor to Hornblower and his ilk.

Nelsons fighting Cocks. This is another very good book from
this author and again, slightly more pronounced than his
previous novel, there is a trickle of humour which definitely
adds to the enjoyment for this reader. Action and excitement is
also present in abundance, a thoroughly enjoyable read. It is
indeed, as goodasthe first novel. At just over 60% the pace
continues as does the enjoyment of reading this fine novel.

Sadly, it would appear that Cockburn
has been put ashore. As there does not appear to be a book 3!

The American in this book continues to say "yew" instead of "you" throughout the book. It's enough to drive you insane after a few pages of it. What is the point? Both words are pronounced the same.
I was going to buy the author's other large series about this guy but I see from several reviews of them the yank is still "yew"ing his way through them all. Another reader lost mr. Watson. Why did you do this??

Nelson's Fighting Cocks by Geoffrey Watson
Another interesting yarn about our heroes Cockburn and Wellbeloved, fighting the French and Spanish in the Mediterranean. Both at sea and on the land. Slow at times.

Strong leading character, explaining more about the East India Company and its influence on the Indian sub continent.

"yew" and "Yors" again. Irritating!
