The life of Thomas, Lord Cochrane is more extraordinary than that of Nelson and more than outshines his fictional counterparts, Horatio Hornblower and Jack Aubry. With a small brig-sloop he harried the French and Spanish shipping in the Mediterranean seizing over fifty vessels, one of them a powerful frigate many times the size of his own ship. Little wonder that Napoleon dubbed him ' the sea wolf '. There is a long indentation on the rear panel. A near fine, clean and tight copy. View more info
