I was encouraged by Walter Minton to start the series, because he said, ,You,re always talking about Nelson and that period. Why don,t you write about it?, And then he said, ,What are we going to call this guy?, I said, ,Richard Bolitho,, immediately, because that was the name of the army captain I,d met some years before in Gorey, Jersey, when I was looking for a berth for my boat. He was the brother of the then Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall, and he did live to know he,d given his name to our hero. I think he was quite chuffed about it.

After the book was finally published in the United States by Walter Minton, a young editor at G. P. Putnam's Sons, who had apparently heard about it from a girlfriend, a showgirl in the Latin Quarter, it shot to the top of the best-seller lists, where it stayed neck and neck with Pasternak's "Doctor Zhivago" for six months.
