Synopsis: Foreword bt Peter Weir. The twenty books in the Patrick O'Brian canon featuring the lives and adventures of Captain Jack Aubrey and his confidant, naval surgeon Stephen Maturin, have been lauded across the world for their blend of classic storytelling, historical accuracy, and inspired characterizations. In this book, respected naval historian Brian Lavery explores the historical framework of the O'Brian novels by examining the facts behind the grand narrative and putting the key episodes in context while detailing naval life in the era of Nelson and Napoleon. With well over a hundred illustrations, the book presents contemporary plans, drawings, engravings, maps, and photographs of museum artifacts that have inspired age-of-sail novelists and moviemakers. Introducing the book is a foreword by Peter Weir, director of the film based on O'Brian's Master and Commander and The Far Side of the World. Avid age-of-sail fans will not want to miss this colorfully detailed complement to the O'Brian series, now available in paperback. 120 illustrations.

About the Author: Brian Lavery, the curator of ship technology at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England, is the author of several books, including Nelson’s Navy (see below), Nelson and the Nile, and The Arming and Fitting of English Ships of War, 1600–1815.
