20 British Admirals of the Napoleonic Wars: The Contemporaries of Nelson
Le Fevre, Peter ; Harding, Richard (editors) Chatham Publishing | MBI Publishing 2005 1861762062 / 9781861762061 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine Near Fine Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
Publisher's original blue boards. Both the book and dust jacket are in excellent, near fine condition. Clean and tight. Binding square. Appears unread / little used. Dust jacket not clipped. pp. x, 406. Although Nelson was the most prominent naval officer of the age, he was only the most successful of an outstanding group of commanders that led the Royal Navy to its unprecedented success in the wars of 1793-1815. The contribution of his contemporaries has been neglected, however, largely because so few admirals have received proper modern study. this volume sets out to adjust the record by providing a series of in-depth biographical essays of the most important figures, each written by a well-known specialist in the field. Like most of our stock, we have this book at a lower price in our shop premises if you would like to call in. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and it protects the jacket against wear. 304785
