946 thought on “Columbus: the Accidental Hero (Kindle Single)

  1. Book gives detailed account of the events in the life of Columbus during his famous voyages.Yet, it a very well written in a non academic style to make reading a pleasure.To me this book completely changes the story about Spanish court betraying and robbing Columbus.That story was good for drama in the plays and in the movies, but it turns out that it is far from reality, where after his first voyage was permitted, Columbus had support of the crown with only minor, considering what was at stake, [...]


  2. A hard driving, well researched account of the adventures what else could you call them of a man whose name is universally known My main take from this book was that this one of the luckiest men in history Time and time again he just happened to be in the right place at the right time His timing in his relations in the royal courts of two nations was nothing less than Providential His crossings and recrossings of the Atlantic were nearly miraculous, considering the size, design, and condition of [...]


  3. A little choppy but he gets you the information you need to know in a fairly concise fashion and you get a good feel for Columbus although not many of the other of the major characters in the story He spends only a short time musing on the ethics of the man which is good because we generally spend too much time in that fruitless endeavor in most history books Columbus was a man of his age, not noticeably worse or better than most of his contemporaries The native Americans are not noticeably diff [...]


  4. Nice, well balanced narrative of one of the most important men of the millennium Kevin Jackson points out Columbus moments of integrity along with his many flaws Of course this enrages the extremists as can be seen in some of the one star comments This is not an exhaustive work, but it does give insight into what caused Columbus to make many of his questionable decisions.The title of the book refers to Columbus discovery as the accidental uncovering of a new continent, and the fact that he was f [...]


  5. As a avid history buff, I like this book very much The best of Columbus in a long time Any history student would love this read


  6. The book gives us a short description of what was the Columbus saga Despite the book name, it seems clear that his utmost determination and a strange and outrageous belief made him one of the most important personalities in History The book could have epic details and descriptions to help the reader to put herself in the Columbus time I do recommend the book as an introductory text about Columbus and the beginning of America as we know it.


  7. Nothing very exciting in this account I m sure that the actual voyage must have been filled with moments of doubt as well as some dramatic experiences that are not mentioned and which I expected to discover by reading this story but it is onl yan account of a voyage that appears to be mainly smooth sailing which it could not have been any any manner of means


  8. Far from being a despot Columbus was one of the greatest mariners of all time, but a terrible administrator, manager and politician who often faced rebellions from his subjects and mutinies from his soldiers He was replaced as governor of every colony he founded Those governors, mostly Oveda of Hispanola were cruel Spanish despots.


  9. There is an excellent, embracing, account of exploration of the Indies in the 15th Century in Towards the Setting Sun by David Boyle Warmly recommended but for a straightforward, readable account of Columbus s part in it, this book is a worth while supplement.So many of us have little than a basic school awareness of what may not have been the discovery of America but was undoubtedly a truly heroic life of courage, determination and highly skilled seamanship Here the author fills in the details, [...]


  10. Very well written and thoroughly impressed with the amount of countries he had discovered and named them as part of the Spanish continent He was no accidental hero as he was exploring different parts of the ocean to discover America as one of those other Islands he came across Very detailed account about his journeys and the annoying ship crew, whom he had to put up with.
