Publisher's Summary

Admiral Lord Collingwood, the eldest son of a Newcastle merchant, went to sea in 1761 at the age of 13.

In his nearly fifty years in the Navy Collingwood's service took him to Boston, where he lived and fought during the American War of Independence; to Antigua, where he and Nelson both fell in love with Mary Moutray; to Corsica; Sicily; and Menorca, where he ended his career as the effective viceroy of the Mediterranean.

    "Fine biography"

    Max Adams combines extensive research with a sympathetic writing style to give a fair and highly readable account of Collingwood's heroic life and career. Beautifully read by Lockhart.
