"Elson has done an excellent job in bringing Hallowell's story to a wider audience, a story that might never have been told without his dedicated efforts. Meticulously researched and well written, Nelson's Yankee Captain is an informative, intelligent and entertaining biography." - The Chronicle Herald Sir Benjamin Hallowell, one of Admiral Horatio Nelson's famous"Band of Brothers," served a lifetime in the navy of Great Britain through the American and French Revolutions between 1775 and 1815. His drama-filled life was profoundly shaped by the currents of history, with strong connections with Canada and the United States through his Boston-bred, staunchly Loyalist family. Bryan Elson's thoroughly researched biography illuminates Hallowell's career and his personal life during these history-shaping events. Through Hallowell's eyes, readers will witness key events in British imperial history during this dramatic period when Britain was able to gain ascendancy over its arch-rival France to"rule the waves." About the Author Bryan Elson is a former officer of the Royal Canadian Navy, and the current director of the Canadian Naval Memorial Trust in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He lives in Halifax. This is his first book.
