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. ____________________________Lord Faulkner of WorcesterHouse of LordsLondon
