What an amazing person,

This review is from: A Thirst for Glory: Life of Admiral Sir Sidney Smith (Paperback)
I have read a few biographies of other leading Royal Navy seamen from the Napoleonic Wars and realise that Nelson was one of many incredible people in the navy. His exploits were as amazing as any fictional hero.
It's a great pity that Sir Sidney Smith is not better known, but his temperament did not suit the age. He would have been a well know national hero had he lived in the 20th century.
