The Sea Wolf: The Life of Admiral Cochrane

Synopsis

The definitive biography of one of the most daring commanders in British maritime history. Thomas Cochrane's inspired tactics led to the capture of fifty vessels in his first year as a Royal Navy Captain during the Napoleonic Wars. Yet by 1814 he was disgraced and debarred from further command. His memory has been allowed to die by an Admiralty embarrassed by his ruthless exposure of their follies.
