Overview

1782 First officer on brig o'war . . .
Fresh from duty on the frigate Desperate in her fight with the French Capricieuse off St. Kitts, Midshipman Alan Lewrie passes his examination board for Lieutenancy and finds himself commissioned first officer of the brig o'war Shrike. There's time for some dalliance with the fair sex, and then Lieutenant Lewrie must be off to patrol the North American coast and attempt to bring the Muskogees and Seminoles onto the British side against the American rebels (dalliance with an Indian maiden is just part of the mission). Then it's back to the Caribbean, to sail beside Captain Horatio Nelson in the Battle for Turks Island. . . .
Naval officer and rogue, Alan Lewrie is a man of his times and a hero for all times. His equals are Hornblower, Aubrey, and Maturin—sailors beloved by readers all over the world.
Praise for The Naval Adventures of Alan Lewrie
"Plenty of action . . . Fast-paced, graphically descriptive and well-plotted."
—The Virginian-Pilot & The Ledger-Star
"Fast-moving. . . A hugely likable hero, a huge cast of sharply drawn supporting characters: there's nothing missing. Wonderful stuff."
—Kirkus Reviews

Fresh from duty on the frigate Desperate in her fight with the French Capricieuse, Alan Lewrie is commissioned first officer of the big o'war Shrike. He must bring the Muskogees and the Seminoles onto the British side against the American rebels--with time out, of course, for some other kind of action.

    Great sea story, but

    There is an awful amount of irrelevant fluff that is not totally germane to the tale. That seemed true of the previous two books. Leave out the irrelevant and two books would probably make one good one.

    I enjoyed this audio book like the first two of the series.

    I am now on book number 7 and really like this series. This audio book was really hard to find. I found it in mp3 format. I only listen to a book one time. I will resell this book in mp3 format for $17.00
