No I haven't yet, I'm kind of working my way back through history and I'm at the Napoleonic Wars now, so that might be next. Thanks.

I read Master and Commander about 3 months ago. Loved it but between the 19th century dialog, politics, music and nautical terms it was fun but it was work too.

I had to read it with an atlas, list of nautical terms and quick access to wikipedia. Felt like I learned alot though and the plot is excellent.
