Portsmouth Point

Originally published in 1848, Portsmouth Point is a timeless anthology of seafaring fiction that offers a fascinating glimpse of British naval life set against the thrilling backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars. Each of the stories here covers a distinct part of everyday life on the high seas during wartime, from the daily routines of officers and men on the lower deck to the mysteries of rigging and the perilous nuances of naval battle.

All of the authors included in this collection witnessed firsthand both the harsh and humorous realities of serving in the British navy. Portsmouth Point thus reveals both the bawdry revelry and anonymous warfare that occupied the lives of countless sailors. This illuminating look into British naval history will interest scholars of English literature, military historians, and seafaring enthusiasts alike
