Editorial Reviews

New York Times Book Review
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.
Library Journal
These are the four most recent titles in Kent's ongoing adventures of 18th-century fighting British sailor Richard Bolitho. Good fun for fans of nautical fiction. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    Superb Historical Nautical Fiction

    C.S. Forstner has nothing on Alexander Kent. Horatio Hornblower has been my hero since boyhood (six decades ago). He is now joined by Richard Bolitho. The six previous Bolitho novels have served only to whet my appitite for more. Both Richard Bolitho and Horatio Hornblower are individuals in whose exploits in which I wish I could have had the opportunity to participate. There is an addage in the navy, 'Men belong in ships and ships belong at sea'. Captain Richard Bolitho is a prime example of the full meaning of what it means to 'go down to the sea in ships'.
