184 pp, large 8vo (9" H). B&w illustrations. "(Oliver Warner's) approach to The Nile is the same as it was in (his) earlier work (on Tragalgar). The scene is set, the circumstances under which the battle was fought are made clear; the commanders are introduced and the reader comes to know them as human beings no less than as naval captains; the action itself is graphically described, largely through the eye-witness accounts of participants; and the battle's aftermath is followed through in a way which relates the particular action to the war as a whole. The vividness of Mr. Warner's narrative is heightened by the number and variety of his illustrations. Here, from their faces, we can see what manner of men were Nelson, Napoleon, Troubridge, Brueys, de Saumarez or Ball; we can follow the English line as it unhesitatingly sailed into action against the anchored French; and we are present when 'L'Orient' blew up. (This book) is, in short, a most spirited and expert account of one of the classic naval actions of history."
