BIENKOWSKI, Lee. Admirals in the Age of Nelson. Annapolis, MD: Naval Institute Press, (2003). First Printing. Pp. (6),vii-ix,(3),-294,(6). 8vo, black cloth with copper lettering to spine. "The period of the French Wars (1793-1815), known as the golden age of fighting sail in Great Britain becauseof the extraordinary victories won by the Royal Navy, produced an impressi ve roster of brilliant flag officers. To date, however, these naval leadershave been overshadowed by the legendary status of their contemporary, Admi ral Lord Nelson. This book corrects the oversight by placing eleven 'other admirals' in the limelight." - from the dustjacket.
