Skyler Liechty has published a new book on the medals of British Admiral George Brydges Rodney. Here's the announcement.
It is with great pleasure that we announce the publication of Medallic Memorials of George Brydges Rodney Admiral
of the White. This book delves into the life and legacy of one of the most influential figures in British naval history as
illustrated by the numerous medals issued to commemorate his naval achievements which are cataloged here for the
Admiral Rodney was a major figure in the British Royal Navy during the 18th century. He was instrumental in
securing several major victories for Britain during the American Revolution and the Anglo-French Wars. His
bravery and leadership on the high seas earned him the admiration of the British people and a place in the annals of
history. One of his most brilliant accomplishments was the employment of a naval strategy called breaking the line,
which had been virtually unused in British naval warfare up to that point.
In this book, the reader will explore the medals and other commemorative items that were minted to celebrate
Rodney's achievements. Through the examination of these rare and historic artifacts, a picture of Rodney's life and
legacy begins to emerge.
But this book is more than just the story of Admiral Rodney's life. It is a catalog of the medals that delve into the
historical context of the times in which he lived. Many had been previously listed by various authors at different times
here and there in some very scarce and hard to find books, but here is a compilation for the first time of all the medals
commemorating the events of his life.
This is an opportunity to add this unique and insightful work to your library. Whether you are a student of history, a
collector of rare items, or simply a lover of all things medallic, the Medallic Memorials of George Brydges Rodney
Admiral of the White would be a welcome addition to your collection.
