4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By John F. Pepple on January 15, 2009
Format: Paperback
This book is well worth reading, but only if you're immersed in Austen lore. I never would have guessed that someone (Francis Austen) who ended up as the top admiral in the British Navy would have experienced so much disappointment in his career. Also, Jane Austen's father's letter to his sons when they entered the navy is very valuable and the advice in it could be used by lots of people.

Densely informative view of the Royal Navy Circa 1790s-1880s. Not a page turner but interesting none the less.
