The battle of Trafalgar decided a nation's fate, and this fascinating account tells the story of that crucial confrontation as it has never been told before.

Waterloo; day of battle by David Armine Howarth( Book )

11 editions published between 1968 and 1975 in English and held by 1,380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For eighteen years, Napoleon and his armies had overrun and terrorized more and more of Europe. Most of that time, the families of the British soldiers had lived in fear of invasion, and the younger soldiers themselves had been brought up with Napoleon as a familiar bogy. Then at last he had overreached himself and been beaten -- and Wellington and his British troops, fighting through the Spanish peninsula, had been able to claim a good share of the credit for his downfall. In April 1814, only just over a year before, Napoleon had been sent into exile on the island of Elba. - p. [5]

Sovereign of the seas : the story of Britain and the sea by David Armine Howarth( Book )

22 editions published between 1974 and 1980 in English and held by 895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No ship, large or small, goes to sea without some benefit of Britain's illustrious four-hundred-year-old tradition of seafaring enterprise and ingenuity. As he did in his highly successful earlier books, Waterloo and Trafalgar, David Howarth has woven together the colored threads of a vast tapestry figured with men, treasure hoards, unexplored coastlines and wild and smoky battles. Sovereign of the Seas begins as a book about British sea power and turns into the story of the British Empire and the tale of the adventuresome men--the admirals, captains, explorers, seamen and pirates--who manned the ships and mastered the waves that the world came to regard as Britain's own. Sovereign of the Seas does not assume a deep knowledge of maritime history. Each period--medieval, Elizabethan, the age of Nelson, the reign of steam and iron, the now-faded ideal of Pax Britannica--is excitingly described through stories of individual ships, sailors, voyages and battles. Lavishly illustrated with 24 pages of color and 24 pages of black-and-white plates plus maps, Sovereign of the Seas is a dramatic and international tale told with enthusiasm and flare by a master storyteller. -- Inside jacket flap

We die alone by David Armine Howarth( Recording )

16 editions published between 1985 and 2012 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in Nazi-occupied Norway in 1943, We die alone is an epic tale of survival against staggering odds. It begins with an ambushed commando raid that leaves all but one of the expatriate resistance fighters dead or captured. Though wounded, Jan Baalsrud, the sole survivor, takes off on a courageous, incredible trek into the wilds of the Lyngen Alps, while the Nazis pursue him relentlessly. He suffers frostbite, snowblindness, and a terrible fall in an avalanche. At last, delirious and near death, he chances on to a cabin, where the first in a series of remarkably brave and clever men and women come to his aid. These "ordinary heroes" will eventually get the crippled Baalsrud to safety and freedom, and the amazing story of how they do it will fill listeners with wonder at the capability of the human spirit
Art and patronage in the Caroline courts : essays in honour of Sir Oliver Millar by David, Ed. by Howarth( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this collection of essays on aspects of the arts in Stuart England, fourteen distinguished scholars pay tribute to Sir Oliver Millar, whose pre-eminence as an authority on the visual arts in seventeenth-century England is well known. The essays concern themselves primarily with aspects of portraiture from Van Dyck to Sir Godfrey Kneller, a genre in which Millar's discoveries have been invaluable, but they also embrace a wide range of subjects which are crucial to our understanding of the arts during the period: the theatre, the masque, stage design, town planning, tomb sculpture, prose portraiture, the patronage of writers and the politics of the years of Personal Rule under Charles I. The essays provoke interesting comparisons with one another, and all reflect the recent trend of Early Modern studies in England in relating art history to the wider concerns of Stuart culture. -- Book jacket
