Book Description

Oct. 25 2005 The Royal Marines
It is 1943, and Captain Mike Blackwood, Royal Marine Commando, is a survivor. Young, toughened and tried in the hellish crucible of Burma, he labours, sometimes faltering, beneath the weight of tradition, the glorious heritage of his family, and the burden of his own self-doubt. For Blackwood, the horizon is not the lip of the trench seen by men of the Corps in the previous war, but the ramp of a landing craft smashing down into the sea, and the fire of the enemy on a Sicilian beach. Here, tradition is not enough, and Mike Blackwood must find within himself qualities of leadership which will inspire those Royal Marines who are once again the first to land, and among the first to die. This is the fourth novel in the Blackwood saga, spanning 150 years in the history of a great seafaring family and the tradition in which they served.

1.0 out of 5 stars not the same quality as his Alexander Kent novels Sept. 9 2012
By srfbuda - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read all his Richard Bolitho books and loved them all. You could smell the sea and the powder as you read. I was hoping for the same with this book, but it was a struggle just to finish it.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Royal Marine Commando contribution to WWII Aug. 13 2007
By EricS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A thoroughly convincing account of World War II from the Royal marine Commando point of view. I highly recommend this book for people who enjoy wartime/military adventures.
5.0 out of 5 stars Rousing adventure Feb. 3 2013
By Robert G. Leroe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Having read nearly all of the Bolitho novels, I've begun the other naval novels by Douglas Reeman, and they are all outstanding. Of the many naval fiction authors out there, Reeman/Kent is head and shoulders above the rest. His books are lessons in leadership, besides being deeply moving stories of courage. Dust on the Sea moves through several engagements with the enemy, yet finds time to deal with the personal lives of two couples (and three Blackwoods), while continuing the family saga. The minor characters are also important to the story and well portrayed. Action, romance and team work under dire conditions are what marks this novel and what makes it memorable.
4.0 out of 5 stars Modern sea adventure Dec 20 2012

This was a good read. Douglas Reeman captures the "modern naval adventure" well, his characters are believable, and the plot is well done. I recommend this.
