Description:     

This would be a hefty book to devote to a single naval action: but in addition to a blow-by-blow description of the battle of Copenhagen in 1801 it contains a step-by-step account of the diplomatic imbroglio that let up to it.  It begins with the refusal of the British to hand Malta over to the tsar (an episode of some contemporary interest) and traces the evolution of the Convention of the Northern Powers.
