Recommended for: biography readers, history buffs
Read in January, 2005

A true rags to riches story. Illegitimate son of an estate gardener becomes military hero for a new nation, still revered today.

Truly inspiring tale of overcoming adversity time and again.

Stephanie Thanks for the review! This will make a perfect gift for my father, a retired Naval Officer and military history buff. I'm always on the lookout for good gift ideas.
