Master & Commander.jpgPatirck O’ Brian wrote twenty Aubrey-Maturin novels, of which Master and Commander is the first. With great respect for maritime history, this exciting sea story depicts life aboard a Nelsonic man-of-war. As the adventure unfolds, readers are asked to enjoy history from a fictional viewpoint: the life of the crew, the workings of the ship and the language of the seaman. With style, O’ Brian offers a tour de force of historical fiction, recreating the exciting but dangerous world of the Napoleonic period with an incredible eye for detail.
