    Another great Richard Bolitho sailing book I would rather read these then most other books A lot of action, terror, tactics in the war against the French He is a real human being and the kind of military leader you would want to follow


  2. Mark Harrison Mark Harrison says:

    Decent Bolitho tale Now a Commodore he commands a squadron with many characters from previous books in the series then sinks lots of French boats and goes home Untaxing but entertaining enough.

    Bolitho, now Commodore, leads a small squadron under his flag into the Mediterranean to thwart the French supply lines just enough for Nelson s victory in Egypt.

    Richard Bolitho has risen enough up the ranks to have his own flag But, illness continues to tail him, as do doubts of his own ability We see increasing amounts of text from the perspective of Adam Pascoe Bolitho , a trend that will apparently continue in the future As always, I found these to be very enjoyable and easy reads.
