Summary

Stor, rigt illustreret og revideret udgave af Dan H. Andersens bestsellerbiografi om søhelten Tordenskiold. Han levede 1690-1720 og er en af de mest myteomspundne skikkelser i danmarkshistorien, kendt for sit vovemod, sin snarrådighed og sin kometkarriere inden for flåden. Som kun 28-årig blev han udnaevnt til viceadmiral, som 30-årig blev han draebt i en duel.

Denne biografi er et psykologisk portraet af en blaendende begavet kriger, en sømand uden sidestykke, men også et menneske, hvis sind var i evig kamp mellem beregning og spontanitet, mellem generøsitet og hårdhed. Bogen tegner også et billede af Danmark under Store Nordiske Krig (1709-20), en af mest farverige perioder i skandinavisk historie. Her optraeder store personligheder som Frederik IV, Karl XII og Peter den Store, og handlingen straekker sig fra Skandinavien til Tyskland og med afstikkere til Indien, Afrika og Amerika.

Critic reviews


Et virkeligt fint stykke historieskrivning, lige fornemt fagkritisk, analytisk og laesevenligt.

Der er eventyr over det; det er ren drengebog.
