The Glorious First of June


The book received a five star review in one of my Sunday newspaper supplements. Has anyone read it? Comments, please?

No, but he writes extremely well. (I particularly recommend Fighting at Sea in the Eighteenth Century, which is excellent.)

Thanks for that, Jim. I'll see if I can have a look at it through the library service.

I agree that "Fighting at Sea in the Eighteenth Century" was an interesting read. I was less impressed with his recent book on Benbow.
