"The story spans Penn's nautical childhood, service in the English Civil War with the Irish Guard, and his prominent and successful role in the Dutch Wars and command of Cromwell's expedition to the Spanish Main. Always sympathetic to the royalist cause, Penn welcomed Charles II aboard the ship that restored the king to England, and was knighted on the deck. For the next nine years he was a member of parliament, a commissioner of the Navy, and a close colleague of Samuel Pepys." -from the dj. Vg in rubbed, nicked dj. 40.00
