ROYAL NAVY AND THE PERUVIAN-CHILEAN WAR 1879 - 1881, THE: Rudolf de Lisle's Diaries and Watercolors
Gerard de Lisle
beautifully presented book captures the spirit of a little known war
where the Royal Navy played a peripheral but crucial role. The power of
the British Empire was at its height, thanks to the reach of the Royal
Navy and officers from that service who often found themselves far from
home and in positions of power way beyond their rank.
