'The Hundred Days' to most people calls to mind Napoleon's last, colossal gamble with the fate of his adopted country. But they also heralded a return to the long, long war which had at last ended in 1814. Yet in Patrick O'Brian's masterly imaginative recreation of the Nelsonic Navy there were, as in every war, fighting men whose sensibilities revolted from the slaughter. 281pp. Size: 8vo Demy (8½" x 5½") Jacket Designed by Geoff Hunt.
