Exit Britannia

By Janet Sloss


"Janet Sloss's earlier books are well known to the people of Menorca. They concern the famous English governor of the island, Richard Kane, and the period of French rule from 1756 to 1763. The current publication covers a tumultuous period in European politics in which two figures stand out: General Napoleon Bonaparte and Admiral Horatio Nelson. There is a legend in Menorca concerning the brilliant English admiral, Horatio Nelson, which Janet Sloss dismisses with facts based on the private correspondence between Lord Hamilton and the admiral.

This new book deals with the last British dominion of our island, during the brief period from 1798 to 1802, which ended with the Treaty of Amiens, the bicentenary of which has been so brilliantly commemorated in Menorca. Without doubt, with her new publication Janet Sloss will contribute new understanding of the last years of the eighteenth century in Menorca, drawn from the inexhaustible British archives that deal with this period of the history of Menorca."

Colonel Director of the Military Museum of Menorca and Associate member of the Spanish Royal Academy of History.
