Title: Cochrane : Britannia's Last Sea-king
Description: London,, Cassell. 2002, Reprint. Soft Cover. The controversial Thomas Cochrane, known to many as the "Sea Wolf", is second only to Nelson himself among the heroes and legends of the Royal Navy. Renowned for his daring, skill, and enterprise, Cochrane was much revered by his men and, remarkably enough, later went on to command ships in the navies of Chile, Brazil, Peru, and Greece, providing outstanding leadership in their struggles for freedom. As a Radical Member of Parliament and a staunch supporter of reform in its darkest hour, Cochrane stood on principle rather than on practicality and constantly found himself at the center of political firestorms. Very Good.
