From the cover: “The Napoleonic wars produced a group of the most brilliant young naval officers in England’s history. Even in such company, Tom Cochrane proved himself outstanding, second, perhaps, only to Nelson in daring, vision and success. Yet because he would not tolerate the almost universal corruption of his day — the enormous sums paid to officials who did nothing and the pittances paid to men who had lost arms or legs in battle — he won the tireless hatred of those in charge of the Admiralty and of the country’s affairs.
