'In the era of Edward Pellew, first Viscount Exmouth, Vice-Admiral of England, lived other sea-captains whose names are much more famous than his: Nelson, Collingwood, Jervis. Yet naval historians have called Pellew 'the finest sea officer of his age', and it will be remembered that that great fictional seaman Horatio Hornblower learned his seamanship under Pellew of the Indefatigable. Why is this commanding figure almost forgotten to-day, unmentioned in modern histories. In his exciting new novel The Sea Officer Showell Styles has provided the answer by recording, with imaginative detail based entirely on historical fact, the colourful career and the many exciting sea-fights of this shadowy hero of a century and a half ago; a hero almost superhuman in strength and endurance but human indeed in the one weakness which prevented him from being numbered among the Great.' 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
