Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This trio, published in 1972, 1973, and 1968, respectively, offer more of the briny adventures of Richard Bolitho as he sails the seas during the late 18th century. LJ's reviewers found Sloop to be a "rousing novel" (LJ 12/1/72), while Kent himself was praised as the "worthy successor to C.S. Forester" (LJ 7/68). For all collections that like their adventure stories served with a pinch of salt.
Saturday Evening Post
...[G]uarantees interest and suspense that sweeps the reader from one page to the next....To the final intense moment of the English Victory over the French in a naval engagement unparalleled in vividness and description.
The New York Times
...[F]ollow the wake of Hornblower into 18th-century seas, where a crew of shanghaied valiants kicks the stuffing out of all comers... a salty testament to the mystique and the brutality of the square-rigger.
From the Publisher
“One of our foremost writers of naval fiction.”
