Über diesen Titel:
Rezension: This is a very valuable book, and Cockburn will not likely need another biographer in our lifetimes. The Northern Mariner Vol. VIII, No. 4 This well-researched and carefully written biography will be of particular interest to specialists in the 19th-century Royal Navy, but its examination of the impact of national politics on naval administration and individual reputations gives it wider appeal. Naval History ... thorough, scholarly and closely based on the documents ... This is very much an official Life, for not much survives to illuminate the private man, and he seems, perhaps unavoidably, somewhat colourless - but it is nevertheless a life full of interest and importance, not only for the "British Navy in transition", but for the political and social life of the era.
