Commander: The Life and Exploits of Britain's Greatest Frigate Captain

Commander: The Life and Exploits of Britain's Greatest Frigate Captain - Stephen Taylor A scrupulously researched and very fair telling of the life and achievements of the man who was argueably "The Greatest British Sea Officer of the Age of Sail". He suffered from the effects of living a long life and not the martyred saintdom of Nelson. He deserves to be remembered for who he trully was and not merely the fictionalized mentor of Horatio Hornblower. After all the Truth is stranger(and better) than fiction.
