Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Mr. Pope is as good at detail as Ramage is at tactics and it's for those who like their cutlasses sharp and their romance romantic."  —Kirkus Reviews
New York Times Book Review
"Dudley Pope is an English naval historian . . . .Not even C.S. Forester knows more about the routine and battle procedures of the British Navy in the days of Nelson"

Meet the Author

Dudley Pope, a naval defense correspondent of the London Evening News, progressed to writing carefully researched naval history. C.S. Forester urged Pope to try his hand at fiction and saw the younger writer as his literary heir. Pope began what was to become an impressive series with Ramage (1965) and, over the next 24 years, produced 17 more novels tracing Lord Ramage's career. Pope died in 1997.
