The Sea Warriors [PDF]

by Richard Woodman
The Sea Warriors chronicles the real-life adventures of the great sea captains who spent long, arduous years on the world's oceans, fighting for king and country, to win and rule the waves. The struggles of the Royal Navy's finest commanders encompass the Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812, as well as fights against pirates and battles with the sea itself. Author Richard Woodman, best known for his Nathaniel Drinkwater series of historical novels, recounts in exciting detail the deeds of the captains and mates who manned the opposing frigates—who blockaded ports, who intercepted the enemy's trade, who protected merchant ships from enemy attacks and piracy. Extraordinary characters stride across these pages—men like Lord Cochrane, Charles Brisbane, and Nisbet Willoughby—naval heroes who for nearly two centuries have stood in the shadow cast by the famous British admiral Horatio Nelson. Some, like Warren, Pellew, Cochrane, and Collingwood, still have some measure of renown, while others are almost unknown today despite their brave and brilliant exploits. " ... marvelous ... shows where Patrick O'Brian and C. S. Forester got all their stuff ... more exciting to read than either."—John Bayley, "Best Books of the Year,"—Times Literary Supplement "A superb Napoleonic War study, admirably written. It puts Patrick O'Brian and Hornblower in the shade."—Daily Telegraph "For fans of Patrick O'Brian or C. S. Forester who crave true stories of high adventure in Nelson's navy."—Kirkus Reviews
