Christopher Columbus by Ernle Dusgate Selby Bradford( Book )
20 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Long before he made his fateful crossing of the Atlantic, Christopher Columbus learned his seamanship as a young man in the Mediterranean and then in the service of the King of Portugal. But soon his eyes turned to the ocean and what lay beyond. Opposition to his idea of finding the East by sailing west was based on differing ideas of the size--and shape--of the world. To the end of his days Columbus insisted that where his ship came aground was in the Indies, even when it became clear to his contemporaries that they were in fact in an area of the world previously unknown to Europeans. Bradford portrays Columbus's genius, stubbornness, greed and stupidity mixed with bravery and masterly navigation skills. A great book gives us a true and balanced portrait of a great explorer who forever changed the world

The Sword and the Scimitar is a saga of one of the most fanatical religious wars in world history.

Paul the traveller by Ernle Dusgate Selby Bradford( Book )
24 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Few historians immersed themselves in their topics like best-selling, noted author Ernle Bradford. Specializing in the Mediterranean world and naval topics, Bradford was an enthusiastic sailor himself and spent almost thirty years sailing the Mediterranean, where many of his acclaimed books are set. He served in the Royal Navy during World War II, finishing as the first Lieutenant of a destroyer, and afterwards worked as an editor and correspondent for the BBC. Now, E-Reads is proud to present his engaging series of military histories to a new generation of readers. PAUL THE TRAVELLER Saint Paul and his World The story of Saint Paul - the thirteenth apostle. Born into Asia Minor's Jewish aristocracy and a passionate student of scripture, Paul was part of a crowd that killed Stephen, a deacon regarded as the first Christian Martyr. But on the road to Damascus, Paul experienced a miracle that would change his life and in turn change history. This conversion experience convinced him that his true master was the man who would come to be known as Jesus Christ. Drawing on his vast command of ancient history and blending it with superb story-telling skills, Bradford weaves a tale that takes the reader from city to city as Paul spreads the teachings of Christ despite being beaten, stoned and shipwrecked. It's a thrilling tale and stirring biography of a man whose devotion and rhetorical genius laid the groundwork for the religion that soon swept the civilized world

Julius Caesar : the pursuit of power by Ernle Dusgate Selby Bradford( Book )
9 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and held by 802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A military genius worshiped for his courage; a fierce politician admired for his shrewdness and mercy; a brilliant writer and speaker. It's no wonder that in his lifetime Julius Caesar held the positions of military tribune, praetor, consul, pro-consul and dictator. But even his astounding ambition could not make him emperor, though it did achieve the conquest of Cleopatra, ruler of the most fabulous kingdom in all of known civilization. In this biography of Caesar, Bradford steers away from the cliches and legends and cuts right to the heart of who Caesar really was - a man who based his entire existence on the pursuit of power
The sultan's admiral : the life of Barbarossa by Ernle Dusgate Selby Bradford( Book )
30 editions published between 1968 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Admiral, naval hero, privateer, warrior and empire-builder, Kheir ed-Din or Barbarossa, as he was known in the West, was a legendary figure. Born on Lesbos in Greece, he rose to become High Admiral of the Ottoman Navy, Sultan of Algiers and friend and advisor to Suleiman the Magnificent. His life dominated the history of the Mediterranean in the 16th century. His achievements in re-organising the Ottoman Navy and his command of it helped the expansion of the Turkish Empire that threatened all of Europe. When he died, Turkish records for the year recorded 'The King of the Sea is dead'.In this definitive biography, Ernle Bradford has brilliantly recreated Barbarossa's remarkable life alongside a vivid portrayal of the Ottoman and Mediterranean worlds at this thrilling moment in history
Nelson : the essential hero by Ernle Dusgate Selby Bradford( Book )
18 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 777 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As a naval commander he was an inspiring hero, honored to this very day as the essence of bravery. In his private life, he was a cad, conducting a scandalous openly adulterous affair with Lady Emma Hamilton and humiliating her cuckold husband. In victories at sea and in the boudoir, Horatio Nelson was an indomitable conqueror and deserving of his immortal reputation. He was the sworn enemy of Napoleon and the French, and considered himself a failure if a single enemy ship escaped destruction. His strategies to achieve this end are still studied and marveled at. Bradford brilliantly recounts th
The battle for the West : Thermopylae by Ernle Dusgate Selby Bradford( Book )
13 editions published between 1980 and 2014 in English and held by 765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The three-day battle for the pass at the "Hot Gates" of Thermopylae was a critical contest in the Persian king Xerxes's massive invasion of Greece. The bloody stand made there by Leonidas and his small Spartan army in 480 BC has since become the very emblem of patriotism, courage, and sacrifice. The ambitions of Xerxes were vast. Having amassed the largest force of men and ships ever assembled, he set out to conquer Greece, at the same time sending an army of Carthaginians to overrun Sicily. The two forces planned to open the gates to the wealth of the western Mediterranean. Ernle Bradford's narrative spans the entire era of the invasion, from the building of an incredible wooden bridge across the Hellespont to the final crushing defeat of the Persian rear guard at the battle of Plataea. There, as before, the Spartans were the decisive force. It was at Thermopylae, however, that the fate of Xerxes's forces was determined by a small band of Spartans. - Back cover
