I've just finished reading 'Revenge in the Name of Honour' by Nicholas Kaizer, covering the reaction of the Royal Navy in the War of 1812 to its losses in the struggle, which made for a very interesting read.

Looks like an awesome book, but $32 USD US for a paperback copy on Amazon?

Sorry Dan, I can't comment knowledgeably on book prices in the US, other than to say Helion produce rather unique titles and their books seem to command a strong retail price here in the UK as well.

Suggest the alternative is keeping a look out in the second hand market, but even then a limited supply keeps prices up.

A sad reality of today's book market is that the eBook has driven most books (fiction and otherwise) to that format. Besides costing silly prices for books on them (like really, a file stored on a server to be downloaded costs $10 USD-30 US?), the remaining hardback and paperback market for books that are not able to be fully featured on an eBook (like maps, colored pictures, large or high detailed maps and pictures, etc.) have made such books to be printed as hardbacks and paperbacks in what is becoming a shrinking and marginalized market, thus sky rising prices for them. History, scientific and such books that require large page formats, highly detailed maps, charts, etc., are increasing in cost as they have a smaller population of readers willing to pay what it costs to print them in physical formats.

Life, not all changes are for the better.
