Acerca de

From Library Journal:

In his first nonfiction effort, novelist Price (Here Be Monsters, LJ 5/15/86) offers us a wonderful popular history of the British Navy in its golden years. In format, the text details six naval encounters of famous captains (five actual captains and C.S. Forester's Horatio Hornblower). By the end of the book, the reader is given a fine summary of the evolution of a frigate (a fast, powerful, single-deck warship), naval officer background and advancement, life aboard ship, mutiny, actual battle, and political intrigue. The volume contains portraits and paintings of famous frigate battles. Readers seeking more information on the subject should consult Michael Lewis's A Social History of the Navy, 1793-1815 (1954) and Byron Lavery's The Line of Battle: The Sailing Warship, 1650-1840 (Naval Inst., 1992). This small, well-written volume would make a fine addition to public library collections.?Richard S. Nowicki, Emerson Vocational H.S., Buffalo, N.Y.
