The War for All the Oceans: From Nelson at the Nile to Napoleon at Waterloo
Penguin Books, 2008 - Broj stranica: 534
An action-packed account of the sea battles of the Napoleonic War, a naval struggle that lasted from 1798 to 1815, beginning with Napoleon's seizing power and ending with the War of 1812. In this vivid and visceral account, the authors draw on eyewitness records to portray not only the battles but also the details of a sailor's life--shipwrecks, press-gangs, prostitutes, spies, and prisoners of war. This epic narrative history will appeal to fans of Patrick O'Brian and C.S. Forester, as well as all readers of military and social history.--From publisher description.
