Captain James Cook by Richard Hough( Book )
20 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
James Cook, born in 1728, rose from the lowest ranks of the merchant marine, then through the Royal Navy, to become one of the most celebrated men of his time, the last and the greatest of the romantic navigator/explorers. His voyages to the eastern and western seaboards of North America, the North and South Pacific, the Arctic and the Antarctic, brought a new understanding of the world's geography and of the peoples, flora, and fauna of the lands he discovered. Richard Hough's meticulously researched narrative captures all the excitement of this age of discovery and establishes Cook as a link between the vague scientific speculations of the early eighteenth century and the industrial revolution to come. He pioneered the use of new navigational technology, measuring and recording endlessly, producing maps of unprecedented accuracy. He revolutionized the seaman's diet, all but eliminating scurvy. Always seeking the truth of geography Cook was also an exploder of myths, among them that of the great southern continent imagined by earlier geographers and scientists

Hailed as an important contribution both to history and to sea literature when first published in 1961, The Potemkin Mutiny gives a dramatic blow-by-blow account of the June 1905 mutiny on board the Russian battleship Potemkin.

Richard Hough chronicles events from the first rumblings of discontent to the closing scenes of the uprising that nearly brought about the Russian Revolution twelve years early. His balanced account depicts the protagonists not as symbols but as human beings reacting under powerful tensions

15 editions published between 1983 and 1986 in English and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This portrait of Lady Mountbatten details her spirit, her appetite for extremes, and her incredible personal achievements in England, India, and elsewhere. Widely known for her beauty, wealth, and self-indulgent way of life, which reflected her generation, she was the object of widespread scrutiny and controversy. She married Prince Louis Mountbatten, a career naval officer who would one day be Admiral of the Fleet. During the war, she suddenly underwent a metamorphosis, identifying herself first with the Jews in Hitler's Germany and then with the casualties of World War II. The war gave Edwina's immense energy focus and satisfied her desire for work and action beginning with joining the St. John's Ambulance Brigade. Thereafter, with great dedication and courage, she became totally involved in providing relief for the suffering and homeless. Countless thousands of refugees, liberated prisoners, and wounded soldiers benefited from her concern. She was a much-decorated chief of numerous charities that she was working when she unexpectedly died in 1960
