In his nearly fifty years in the Navy Collingwood's service took him to Boston, where he lived and fought during the American War of Independence; to Antigua, where he and Nelson both fell in love with Mary Moutray; to Corsica; Sicily; and Menorca, where he ended his career as the effective viceroy of the Mediterranean.

Fine biography

Max Adams combines extensive research with a sympathetic writing style to give a fair and highly readable account of Collingwood's heroic life and career. Beautifully read by Lockhart.
