A companion to O'Brian's sea novels, this concise, historical overview offers a straightforward explanation of what daily life was like in Admiral Horatio Nelson's navy. Line drawings and charts help readers to understand the construction and rigging of the great ships and the types and disposition of the guns. Contemporary illustrations and cartoons depict various aspects of naval life, from the press gang to the scullery.
