About the Author:

SAMUEL ELIOT MORISON, Rear Admiral, United States Naval Reserve (1887-1976), was an American historian noted for his works of history, especially maritime history, that were both authoritative and highly readable. At various times he held teaching positions at Berkeley, Oxford, and Harvard. A sailor as well as a scholar, he garnered numerous literary prizes, military honors, and national awards from both foreign countries and the United States, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom. His Admiral of the Ocean Sea won the 1943 Pulitzer Prize for Biography.

Review:

''A splendid achievement and a lasting monument of American scholarship. The style is delightful and flowing, and the whole work is replete with beauty and humor . . . [A] supremely valuable contribution to the literature on Columbus.'' --New York Times
