Julian Stockwin – a new approach to Nelson’s Navy yarns
Back in the days of Charles Dickens, there was Captain Frederick Marryat, with Mr Midshipman Easy and other stories of Nelson’s Navy. Then the 20th century kicked off with CS Forrester -whose real name was Cecil Louis Troughton Smith – and the Horatio Hornblower series, which became the benchmark for others like Dudley Pope with Ramage and Alexander Kent with Richard Bolitho.
