    Re: Basque Country XIX Century and Novels of C.S. Forester

    Max Adam's book 'Admiral Collingwood: Nelson's own hero' is a biography of a man who was absolutely pivotal before, during, and after the battle of Trafalgar and in suppport of the Spanish of Cadiz in 1808 against the French, and leading up to the Peninsular War which followed.
    IMHO the book reads better than many novels, and Collingwood himself was the ultimate talented, unpretentious, humane, professional mariner and leader.
    And he hailed from hereabouts, just a daylight sail north of Cook's birthplace ...
    Copies of Max Adam's various books on Collingwood are currently available through Amazon or abebooks on both sides of the N Atlantic.
