Overview

Ramage and the Guillotine by Dudley Pope


Across the English Channel, Napoleon has massed a great invasion flotilla. English forces, under Lord Nelson, are all but paralyzed—not knowing the size, strength, or time of the foreign onslaught. In a daring spy scheme to protect British shores, Ramage is chosen to plumb the secrets of the French, and the penalty for failure is the guillotine.

About 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.

This is #6 in the Lt. Lord Ramage series of adventure novels. They are historical novels about a young English naval Lieutenant during the Napoleonic era. In this particular novel, Lt. Ramage is sent on a spy mission in France. Pope gives us not only a good story but a sense of what France was like in the years after the Revolution when they were executing people based on accussations alone and Napoleon Bonaparte was trying to conquer all of Europe. Good story and history can make a great combination...

This story was not as interesting or engrossing as the previous 5 novels. The story wandered and at times was difficult to keep track of. Not enough action. Not as good at the previous 5. I am getting ready to read #7, based on the overview, it looks to have more action and a better story line. If you are planning on reading the full series, you should read this on since the stories seem to build on one another. Not one that I would read a 2nd time like most of the Hornblower series.
