    Restarting another thread from the original tavern.

    I just finished Most Secret and Confidential: Intelligence in the Age of Nelson. (affiliate link)   It was good, but definitely not a book on the Age of Sail or Age of Nelson that I would recommend for beginners on the topic.  It’s best read when you already have a solid understanding of the wars from 1792-1815, and the associated naval battles.  The focus on intelligence is quite interesting, and gives you a different perspective on the challenges of the time period.  I did find it to be a bit random and disjointed at times; I suppose I prefer history books that read more like a story with clearer chronology.  Still a good read though.
