An updated edition of Max Adams’ book “Collingwood – Northumberland’s Heart of Oak” is out. That’s great news. Even better news is that Newcastle City Council runs a contest where you can win the book.



I like Max Adams’ writing style a lot. You don’t have to be a history buff to enjoy his work, so I can really recommend  his books. “Collingwood – Northumberland’s Heart of Oak” is also available through Amazon.

Good luck!

I got the new version from Amazon.
I originally saw it in the tourist office in Morpeth, so I knew I wanted it for the pictures, but I was hurrying for a train (and soaked to the skin – it was the weekend our snow started), and didn’t have time to wait in the queue to buy it then…

Ah, thanks a lot for the information! I’ll update the entry and place my order on Amazon then. :)

Belated question: can anyone tell me what the differences are between the full length book “Trafalgar’s Lost Hero” (a.k.a. “Nelson’s Own Hero”), and this one?

(because I’m too cheap to order “Heart of Oak” completely on spec)
