Napoleonic wars

Nautical Books by Tom Connery

Shred of Honour  by Tom Connery


Just when you thought the publishing industry was done with the Napoleonic wars, yet another saga of a British fighting man, in this case, Lieutenant George Markham of the Royal Marines, commences. When his superior is killed in action, Markham inherits command of a frigate's marine detachment--a motley crew of the king's bad bargains, half of them transferred soldiers. Taking them ashore at Toulon, under the censorious eyes of superiors who suspect him of being an Irishman, a Catholic, and a coward, Markham has to bring them to heel, train them in small-unit tactics (well depicted), and steer a course through the tangled web of French politics woven by both the perpetrators of the terror and those fleeing it. Several well-drawn historical characters, including the inevitable Lord Nelson and the undeservedly obscure Sir Sydney Smith, join the cast, and the action rises to a grand and bloody climax of fire, murder, and hairbreadth escape. In all, a highly promising launching. Roland Green

The Naval Chronicle : The Contemporary Record of the Royal Navy at War, 1793-1798 (The Naval Chronicle , No 1)

From 1799 to 1819 more than 1,000 pages of British naval news and views were published every year in The Naval Chronicle, including action reports, intelligence of foreign naval matters, and biographies of officers. In short, it was the most important original account of the naval part of the Napoleonic Wars. Outside the major libraries the 40 volumes of The Naval Chronicle are not generally available. This new consolidated edition, in five volumes, contains all the most significant material from the originals, including Admiral Nelson's only autobiographical record.

Nicholas Tracy, a member of the history department of the University of New Brunswick, is the editor of Naval Warfare in the Age of Sail and the author of the definitive Nelson's Battles.
