The little 90-100 page books in this series from an English publisher are quick, interesting reads -- if you can buy them on remainder as I did (Daedalus Books) for a couple of dollars. Others I've read recently include Life in an English Coffee House and Life in a Tudor Palace.

A handy guide to organisational and social aspects of Nelson's navy. However, as a sailor and avid reader of O'Brian, Kent and many other nautical writers, I was pleasantly surprised at the depth of knowledge already possessed.

Duidelijk en overzichtelijk: het leven aan boord van een oorlogsbodem in de tijd van Nelson. ALs je van historie houdt, zeker de moeite waard.
