Jan asked:

Is there a special message meant by the cover depicting the Danish naval officer Peder Willemoes exhorting his crew on April 2 1801 during the Battle of Copenhagen?

Philip Allan In Northern Seas is set around the build up to the Battle of Copenhagen and also features the battle. I thought it would be nice to show the battle from the Danish perspective for a change. The Danish side fought very well, and Nelson came closest to defeat at Copenhagen. The picture shows one of the more celebrated incidents in the action.
