Blake of the "Rattlesnake"

Gelesen von Mark F. Smith

(4,537 Sterne; 27 Bewertungen)

Fred Jane, who later went on to publish his famous "Jane's Fighting Ships", doubtless was noting the success of other books that forecast a British defeat in the event of war in the late 19th century when he wrote this fictional account of "The Man Who Saved England." Jane tells of a possible war against both France and Russia with plenty of verve and derring-do amid naval battles, both small and large. - Summary by Mark (5 hr 21 min)
