HASH(0xa0ee3bf4) out of 5 stars Rousing adventure Feb. 3 2013
By Robert G. Leroe - Published on
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.

HASH(0xa0ee3e04) out of 5 stars It is a good yarn Oct. 9 2014
By Ekaterina Puffini - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It is a good yarn. I am here in Korea for 2 months and dependent on my Kindle for light reading enjoyment. This book
certainly satisfies that task. But it reads somehow flat and formulaic compared with books of Reeman that I recall
from reading 20 years go when I was similarly in the UK (and buying paperbacks). It is a good yarn, don't get me wrong.
But it reads as though he had gotten tired as a writer (happens to all of us) and is simply churning out books. By all
means buy it. But keep in mind that it may not be up to vintage Reeman.

HASH(0xa0ee424c) out of 5 stars not the same quality as his Alexander Kent novels Sept. 9 2012
By srfbuda - Published on
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.

HASH(0xa0ee41f8) out of 5 stars The Royal Marine Commando contribution to WWII Aug. 13 2007
By EricS - Published on
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.
HASH(0xa0ee421c) out of 5 stars dust on the sea April 13 2015
By chuck - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
lots of emotional stress for a bunch of steely eyed commandos, strikingly similar to another Reeman royal navy yarn with a phsycotic officer serving in special forces
