Men-of-War: Life in Nelson's Navy by Patrick O'Brian is a short, small-format 12.7 cm × 17.6 cm × 0.8 cm (5.00 in × 6.93 in × 0.31 in), concise, well illustrated introduction to life aboard the ships of the Royal Navy during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries; the period in which the author's acclaimed Aubrey–Maturin series of novels is set.[1][2]


The book received mixed reviews with some considering its conciseness a virtue, particularly for a younger audience, while others felt it was lightweight and an attempt to cash in on the author's reputation.[1]
