Sea Life In Nelson\'s Time

The life of the ordinary seaman in the British Navy in the late eighteenth century fascinated and appalled Masefield, who described it as "brutalising, cruel and horrible", but it fired his imagination and his prose and this vividly realistic study, the first of its kind, remains the most comprehensive introduction to the subject.
