  1. Thanks again for the opportunity to share my interest in this subject. I often think of Nelson as ‘awesome’ in the original sense of the word- he certainly inspired terror in his enemies!

  2. Great guest episode…very exciting stuff.

    We in America don’t have this kind of Naval history so it is a treat to think about some of the adventures these guys had. We have incredible tales from WWII, of course, but those seem kind of…”familiar” I guess since they were on ships not so different from what we still use today. To think of just steering a huge sailing vessel, let alone fight with one is just mind boggling.
