Product Description

From Library Journal

The third in a series of 18th-century Royal Navy sea adventures by the author of Royal Yankee and The Golden Galleon (St. Martin's, 1987, 1988), which continues the saga of colonial American Royal Navy Officer Edward Mainwaring. Excellent technical detail and a sharp eye for the human element provide an interesting setting for Lt. Mainwaring's attack upon the combined fleets of Spain and France harbored behind the fortifications of the French port of Toulon in 1742. Comparable to such sea-fiction masters as C.S. Forester, Alexander Kent, and Richard Woodman in its evocation of the age of wooden ships and iron men and more interesting in its treatment of an earlier period than is usually the case with this genre. Recommended.
