A seaman as heroic as Nelson, a master of gunnery and genius at deception, a tactician so formidably skillful Napoleon called him the sea wolf Thomas Cochrane made of his life at sea a legend extraordinary than any of the works of fiction it inspired like the famous sea tales of C S Forester and Patrick O Brian s bestselling series of naval novels featuring theA seaman as heroic as Nelson, a master of gunnery and genius at deception, a tactician so formidably skillful Napoleon called him the sea wolf Thomas Cochrane made of his life at sea a legend extraordinary than any of the works of fiction it inspired like the famous sea tales of C S Forester and Patrick O Brian s bestselling series of naval novels featuring the redoubtable Jack Aubrey.Barely twenty five when he assumed command of the Speedy, Cochrane created mayhem in the Mediterranean as he took the tiny brig with its fourteen guns to naval glory and himself to national fame and a fortune in prize money A maverick, Cochrane often stood at odds with the Admiralty and on occasion operated against its orders As innovative as he was fearless, he flew under false colors to deceive the enemy, instituted in shore guerrilla raiding, promoted the use of explosion ships, and experimented with poison gas, propeller drive ships, and compressed air engines Outnumbered and outgunned, he nonetheless triumphed over Spanish and Portuguese naval forces in battles off the coasts of Chile, Peru, and Brazil, where he served as a mercenary in the cause of independence.Born into a penurious but noble Scottish family, Cochrane rose fabulously and fearlessly from midshipman to admiral, from penniless heir to a radical member of parliament to Tenth Earl of Dundonald He married a penniless orphan and had a long standing liaison with one of the most famous literary figures of his day He survived the Stock Exchange scandal that sent him to prison and escaped to South America, where he helped shape the destiny of a continent Rebellious, dashing, mad, heroic Cochrane both embodies andepitomizes the spirit of the Romantic Age.


Recent Comments "Cochrane: The Life and Exploits of a Fighting Captain"

Cochrane was a British naval hero (and sometimes a zero). This is the sea captain who inspired O'Brian's Master and Commander and Forrester's Horatio Hornblower, etc. Fascinating! Cochrane's exploits were even more daring —truth is stranger than fiction. However, this book is better suited to text than audio. It's not told in a captivating narrative style. Not engrossing. Dry, bare, and sometimes superficial listing of events. I found it almost impossible to listen attentively, despite the mas [...]

Cochrane was the model for the fictional Jack Aubrey. I seem to keep running into him or his family as I write books.

What a character - set in the times of Napoleon, but with the British empire, he pushes the envelope both culturally and personally. Liked this one a lot.

Second only to Horatio Nelson, Lord Thomas Cochrane (1775-1860) is considered the most successful Captain in the British Naval history. Cochrane was the tenth Earl of Dundonald. He was from a noble Scottish family.Harvey covers the three aspects of Cochrane’s career: fighting Captain in the British Navy, radical politician, he was a Member of Parliament and expatriate military genius who after suffering disgrace in England, helped South American countries and Greece battle for independence.Coc [...]

(Based on the audiobook:) A fantastic biography! Napoleon called Cochrane, "Le Lupe de Mer," the "Sea Wolf." His almost unbelievable exploits in oceans and seas around the globe made him the despair of the Corsican (and have served as the inspiration for novels and movies like "Master & Commander,") and his actions and politics on land made him a sensation in the British Parliament and on Fleet Street. Robert Harvey, who penned "The Liberators," about the men who freed the lands of South Ame [...]

Cochrane is the basis for Patrick O'Brien's fictional character Aubrey Maturin. Having read this book now I feel less guilty for not having read any of O'Brien's books.This is one of those true stories which is just crying out to be made into a film. It has all the elements of a great action movie. I renegade leading man. Constant clashes with established authority. Against the odds victories. A great downfall followed by an exotic redemption.If you only read one naval biography, read this one.

This is a thoroughly researched and superbly balanced assessment of Cochrane's character. It's not hagiography and it's not a hatchet job; Cochrane is shown to be both deeply flawed and extremely brilliant. The problem lies in the poor writing that gets in the way of a magnificent story.

An enjoyable biography of the man said to have been the model for Patrick O'Brian's Capt. Jack Aubrey. In this case the reality is just as much an adventure as the fiction.

Robert Harvey's engaging, if somewhat fawning, Cochrane: The Life and Exploits of a Fighting Captain is a fast read about a VERY adventurous Royal Navy captain from the early 1800.

A look at the career of one of England's great fighting captains; the possible inspiration behind the career C.S. Forester's fictional naval hero, Horatio Hornblower

Fantastic account of a not-so-well-known "hero" of the age, classic stuff, highly readable and very enjoyable

A swashbuckling read.
