Exciting History of a Neglected Great British Hero.
on 25 January 2015
As an admitted History Buff,I knew very little about this man, who has remained in the shadows of history,(at least as far as the non accademic community was concerned)',whereas Nelson his contemporary is so well known for good reasonto us all
Now this excellently, recently researched book, has been published,and is the best, most informative, exciting, and enjoyable read that I have had in a long time.(I really could not put it down)
Even if you are not that interested in History, this mans life story (Excellently retold here) is more exciting to read than any "Hornblower Novel,
indeed if it were a novel, many would claim that the exploits claimed must be over exagerated.
He was a truly Heroic, and decent Commander whose exploits deserve to be much better known.
