    This is a resend of a posting I sent to Navlist about 4 hours ago, but
    which (with one other) has not been reflected back. Did it reach anyone
    On the other hand, two other messages, sent this evening, have arrived.
    Thanks for that view, Michael.
    It's a book that my wife has recently bought, read, and enjoyed. But I
    haven't got round to reading it yet. I will look forward to doing so.

    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
     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.
