Books: latest order

3 October, 2007 at 10:44 am Leave a comment

I sometimes wonder if my picture might be pinned to a wall at amazon.co.uk – “idiot customer of the year”.

I’ve placed the following orders today – be afraid and mentally prepare for more book reviews.

Lord John and the Private Matter
by Diana Gabaldon

Very curious to read that one as it comes highly recommended by .

Boys at Sea: Sodomy, Indecency, and Courts Martial in Nelson’s Navy
by B.R. Burg

I’ve wanted to order that book for quite a while, but the price always scared me off. However, while fiction is fiction and can take liberties, I still try to keep as close as possible to historic facts. It would be a bit hypocritical to ignore the darker side of the Royal Navy in the 18th century.

Huzzah – finally available again!

The Wooden World: Anatomy of the Georgian Navy
by N.A.M. Rodger

A classic – usually out of stock. Currently some private sellers are offering the book, so now would be the moment to place an order. 🙂

And last but not least:

The Young Sea Officer’s Sheet Anchor
by D. Lever

This one will hopefully deswissify my naval writing. 😉

Bring it on, amazon!
