Title: Royal Admirals 1327-1981.
Description: Deutsch. 1982 1st. 206pp. Prof ills. 24x17.Like New., Mint in d/j. Looks back over 700 years of English naval history to find that English kings, almost without exception, have taken to the sea themselves or raised their sons to be sailors. Full of anecdotes and stories, the book describes how the present royal family and their forbears have been diligent in working their way through the ranks. It also reveals the most spectacular travesty of promotion, the meteoric rise of Edward Augustus, Duke of York, from midshipman at 19 to C-in-C Mediterranean Fleet at 24.
