Nelson's Blood: The Story of Naval Rum

Copertina anteriore
Naval Institute Press, 1 feb 1996 - 196 pagine
The sailor's rum ration, known to the service as 'Nelson's blood', was an integral part of the life and image of the Royal Navy. When the Admiralty decided to abolish naval rum in 1970, so ended a tradition that stretched back over 300 years. In this fascinating book, Captain Pack sets the story of the tot against a background of Britain's maritime history throughout that period - wars, bloody battles, keeping the peace and long voyages of discovery - a period that witnessed the rise of Empire and the transition to Commonwealth.
