MASTER AND MADMAN The Surprising Rise and Disastrous Fall of the Hon Anthony Lockwood RN

£25.00 £3.99

The Naval career of Anthony Lockwood exactly spanned the quarter century of the Napoleonic Wars. This real-life Hornblower fought the French, was shipwrecked, captured and jailed in France, was present at the Spithead Mutiny and ended his career surveying the waters of Canada before his espousal of radical democracy led to his final descent into madness. This biography of an undeservedly forgotten figure tells us much of the reality of life in Nelson’s navy.
