Book Description

March 4 2008
The new Bolitho novel from the greatest living writer of naval fiction.

It is February 1818, and Adam Bolitho longs for marriage and a safe personal harbour. But with so much of Britain’s fleet redundant, he knows he is fortunate to be offered H.M.S. Onward, a new 38-gun frigate whose first mission is not war but diplomacy, as consort to the French frigate Nautilus.

Under the burning sun of North Africa, Bolitho is keenly aware of the envy and ambition among his officers, the troubled, restless spirits of his midshipmen, and the old enemy’s proximity. It is only when Nautilus becomes a sacrificial offering on the altar of empire that every man discovers the brotherhood of the sea is more powerful than the bitter memories of an ocean of blood and decades of war.

Product Description

Review

“The storytelling has an easy mastery; the prose is lean and muscular, without a word wasted. How well Kent knows his stuff! Not just the jargon of the high seas — the pawls and maintops and the quarter-boats and the catheads — but the psychology of naval men in uniform.” —Sunday Telegraph

An excellent story as are all books written by Alexander Kent ( Douglass Reeman ). I highly recommend his books to anyone interested in books written in the tradition of Horatio Hornblower ( C.S. Forester ). I have all of the Bolitho series and wish there were more . I am a new customer to Amazon ,but I will be a faithful one from now on.
