This history of Admiral Sir John Norris is a detailed presentation of a seaman and a dutiful officer, as well as the lively conditions and politics of this dramatic period and of Norris’s dilemmas serving George I’s purposes in the Baltic. The British events in the Baltic has claimed little attention by naval historians previously, and detailed accords of the everyday business of convoy management or blockade, or moving ships to new stations through uncharted skerries come alive in this well-researched account.
David Denis Aldrigde received a PhD in history at Uppsala Universitet, Sweden.
