Deadly Winter: The Life of Sir John Franklin
by Martyn Beardsley 
Despite the fact that Sir John Franklin's name is in the forefront of the surging interest in polar exploration, this is the first full biography written in twenty years about the British adventurer who disappeared with his men in the Arctic in 1845. This book examines Franklin's incident-filled and sometimes contentious career as an explorer, including theories old and new regarding his final Northwest Passage expedition, and questions about his first overland expedition, where many of his men died from the cold and starvation. In addition, the author recounts Franklin's naval career that included service with Nelson at Copenhagen and Trafalgar and joining the great navigator Matthew Flinders on the first circumnavigation of Australia. Nor is Franklin's stormy service as governor of Tasmania overlooked. Complimenting the epic side of his life as an explorer is a portrait of his personal life, based on the rich correspondence and diaries of his two wives, including efforts to pressure the Navy to find the missing husband. The engrossing work is sure to be enjoyed by all exploration enthusiasts.

The Penobscot Expedition: Commodore Saltonstall and the Massachusetts Conspiracy of 1779
by George E. Buker
As the largest American naval fleet assembled during the Revolutionary War, the vessels comprising the Penobscot expedition were expected to swiftly defeat the British at Fort George on Maine's Penobscot Bay. During the ensuing battle, however, the armada took a dramatic turn toward the disastrous and some forty ships were lost. The result was a defeat the magnitude of which would not be seen again until Pearl Harbor.

Jack Nastyface: Memoirs of an English Seaman
by William Robinson
William Robinson used a pseudonym in 1836 to publish his now-famous memoir, knowing his all-too-realistic description of life on the lower decks would create a scandal. But he hoped it also would provoke changes in the practices of impressment and unfair punishment of sailors. Writing from the point of view of the ordinary Jack Tar in Nelson's Navy, he described the press gangs, floggings, keel-haulings, poor food, long watches, and bloody battles that were routine, as well as the relief found in drinking grog. Such vivid accounts of forecastle adventures were rare in the literature of the day--and remain rare today. Robinson himself fought at Trafalgar in 1805 and took part in many other events in the long war against Napoleon. His revelations about the brutal conditions of everyday shipboard life in the classical Age of Sail--an era that nevertheless managed to produce some of England's finest seamen and most famous victories--provide a valuable record of the seaman's experience. This edition is illustrated with the work of caricaturist George Cruikshank, a contemporary of Robinson's well known for his sketches of nautical life, and an introduction by the noted Nelson scholar Oliver Warner. Originally published under the title Nautical Economy by Jack Nastyface, a hardcover edition of the memoir with the current title was published by the Naval Institute Press in 1973.
