Embedded@Trafalgar with Nelson's Navy

Rated 4.67/5 based on 3 reviews
There's a certain intimacy about the word "embedded." I don't know who coined it embedded, part of the action, eyewitness news on the front line. Embedded became a term used by the media and military to describe correspondents who were carried to war.If you want the facts, go to the history books, but if you want to know how it felt to report Trafalgar turn the page and read the log.

Review by: RichSale on Oct. 13, 2016 :
Fun stories told in a unique perspective of a modern journalist embedded in this epic naval battle. The author is onto something with this approach. Would be interesting to take this approach to other battles in a fictional series.

Review by: Malcolm Torres on Oct. 09, 2016 :
I've been reading this book on and off for many months. It's part comedy, part history, part time-travel, part journalism (and my favorite) mostly a great sea story. I respect the author's determination to the craft of writing, constantly pushing ahead with the story and all the while incorporating ways to keep in lively.

Review by: Matt Eliason on Dec. 28, 2012 :
A good read, assuming historically accurate. The mix of modern away from the battlefield and authentic on the battlefield was a little odd ad created a some discord. If it was in real-time, then surely there would have been aircraft, modern vessels impinging. I would have framed it as a time-travel approach perhaps.
