From the Publisher
"Kent doesn't make it easy for his hero. But he does endow him with the authenticity that makes these adventures the closest thing to C.S. Forester still coming off the presses."  —The New York Times Book Review

    More than just a sea tale.

    While it is true that each successive book deals more with events in England and geo-politics, early eighteenth century style, this would be more the concern of a senior naval officer. There are some historic errors but the books are close enough for a good read. I also enjoy the personal background materiel. Keep it up Mr. Kent.

    Quantity over Quality

    As a fan of Mr. Kent/Reeman's for over 25 years I am appalled by the last few books in an otherwise fantastic series. This book as well as The Only Victor and For My Counrty's Freedom are mere shades of what the preceeding volumes represent in naval fiction. These latest books simply trot out as many old characters, alive or dead and never really explore them at all. Admiral Bolitho is seemilngly endlessly stuck with his bad marriage and sorting out his mistresses' adoring and nonstop outpouring of 'dearest man in the world'. After reading these three volumes I thought Barbara Cartland was ghostwriting them. They are expensive and one had the pagination totally destroyed,i.e. 1-49,125-220 and then back to 50. I returned that one and bought something else. If you love the earlier volumes up to Honor This Day--don't ruin your memories and/or re-reading by reading these. The publisher seems as if they only want the most print without thought of what the print says.
