Days of Sail - Sea Stories of the Napoleonic Era
This site is still under development, there is more to be uploaded later.
The Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars are the primary setting for a genre of fiction that has seen massive interest since the mid twentieth century. While we refer to the "Napoleonic" era the protagenists in these stories are active from the American War of Independence until several decades after Bonapart's capture by HMS Bellerophon.
Many stories bring in real characters, typically admirals including Gambier, St Vincent and, naturally, Horatio Nelson. I don't discuss the characters of these people but show how they fit into the stories and suggest biographies where available.
