In this second volume Eduardo offers us the most thorough research on European citizens who made a real contribution to Argentine history.  These include an American and a British medicine doctor, a Royal Navy rear-admiral, a Connaught Ranger private, and a renowned Dominican Irish priest from Loughrea; they are all accurately depicted alongside others in a number of colourful stories.  Subjects covered range from an 80-gun Third Rate of the Royal Navy to the powerful ships built in Laird Brothers' shipyards in Birkenhead for President Sarmiento´s squad in 1872.   Eduardo  demonstrates the same spirit of reconciliation he kindled in Nottingham by demonstrating the deep historical bonds between our countries.
