"Follow the wake of Hornblower into 18th-century seas . . . a salty testament to the mystique and the brutality of the square-rigger." --New York Times on the Bolitho Novels "Action is frequent and intense, and the color and excitement of 18th century sea battles are vividly depicted. Best of all, Bolitho will be remembered as a hero who is both human and humane." --Library Journal on the Bolitho Novels "Kent exercises an admirably terse style, revealing a comprehensive knowledge of seafaring and of his period." --Kirkus Reviews on the Bolitho Novels
