Stirring Stories of Peace and War by Sea and Land

Author: James Macaulay
Publisher: Hodder and Stoughton
Publish Date: 1886

Fire and fight, courage and danger enough for a whole generation of boys. Well done, Dr. Macaulay; you are second to none in telling a tale and warning the hearts of your youthful audience as you do it. Your talk is manly and your book is a good six shillings worth of thrilling history. Outside and inside the book is like a live shell. We handled it with great care, fearing that it might explode in our hand. Indeed, it did once carry us clean away.
