This is a gripping account of how the men of Nelson's navy lived and fought, written by the author of the ever-popular Ramage sagas. Based on years of research and reading in contemporary sources, it brings alive, in a way that few other books have done, naval shipboard life during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. Every aspect is covered: the Navy's ships and their weapons, the daily routine of officers and men, the harsh discipline and punishments, the Press Gang, the threat of disease and how the Navy sought to combat it, and the ever-present lure of prize money. It describes how the men who won the battles of Cape St Vincent, the Nile and Trafalgar lived their daily lives, and how in spite of all the hardships they faced, they dominated the seas so completely throughout the Napoleonic Wars. This highly readable book will delight and enlighten all those who seek a vivid yet accurate account of life in the Navy of Nelson's era.     Pages 279  First edition 1981

Condition note, good to very good. Slight damage to top and bottom of the paper cover.
