How They Lived in a Sailing Ship of War by Ian A. Morrison


How They Lived in a Sailing Ship of War by Ian A. Morrison

From the How They Lived series - a series of easy-to-read books in which historical settings are vividly described and drawn for young readers. Boys of ten or twelve years old served with the Royal Navy of Nelson's time, sharing all the hardships of life afloat, from rotting meat to the risk of scurvy. What part did they play in the everyday work of the ship? What were their duties when battle was joined? In the lively, approachable style of this commended series, Ian Morrison draws a bold, vivid picture of life aboard Nelson's flagship at the time of Trafalgar.
