"I could feel the heaving deck and smell the gun smoke in these pages". -- Admiral Stansfield Turner, USN (retired)The Phenomenal Success Of Patrick O'Brian's seafaring novels has spawned a great hunger for more reading material on the Royal Navy and the Napoleonic Wars. Dean King has combed through mountains of primary-source material and has selected the most riveting, informative, and entertaining accounts from the great age of sail. His explorations have, in the words of Douglas Day, C. W. Barrett Professor of English at the University of Virginia, "yielded a collection of narratives that are just as exciting as the marvelous Aubrey -- Maturin novels of Patrick O'Brian".Told by actual participants, the eyewitness stories range from slices of life at sea to events of great historical significance, including epic battles such as those of Cape St. Vincent and Trafalgar, and the death of Nelson. Every Man Will Do His Duty is sure to delight legions of seafaring adventure fans.
