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.

    Spelling and grammatical errors make Nook books difficult to read

    About every fifth word in this book is either misspelled or has one or more letters missing. It is ver diffi cul to rea boo s s poorly mad .
    I've only had my Nook a month, but I'm finding this a common problem with Nook books.

    British Seafaring Adventure

    This is the 2nd of 18 volumes. It continues from the first volume, but can be read as a single book. The characters are finely drawn and again, the battle scenes are terrific. It's hard to put down until the end. I recommend it!
