"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."
