Books Info:

Arthur Phillip free pdf Little did anyone know that Arthur Phillip, the first governor of Australia, was actually a master spy in the employ of the English government. In Arthur Phillip, Michael Pembroke details his life story and how he became an international spy in an expansive tale that journeys across the world from England to France, crossing Spain to Brazil and onto Australia. As a boy, Arthur became a member of the Royal Navy and soon climbed up the rankings to become an officer involved in great sea battles. He left the navy and fought for the Portuguese king against the Spanish, and the accolades he received from this became a turning point in his career - along the way he was employed by the English government as a spy and travelled far and wide on secret missions. By the 1780s, Arthur Phillip moved in powerful circles that saw him appointed to lead the remarkable social experiment of the Enlightenment that was the First Fleet. This is the unique story of a fascinating historical figure.
