Kent’s hero, Richard Bolitho, displays unusual sagacity and bravery in the execution of his duties, while remaining compassionate and generous towards the men and officers who serve him. Kent has a direct, almost blunt style that makes you think at times that the books aren’t superb, just good. But then you realize that the images cast in your mind are as vivid as if you are watching the story on a huge screen. No one, not Forrester or even O’Brian, creates such vivid imagery. This isn’t better than Hornblower or Aubrey-Maturin, but it is their equal in its own way. I’m not even halfway through the series! That makes me happy that there is so much more to go!

This is but chapter in a really long novel -- the series about the career of Richard Bolitho -- even though it's self-contained as a book. The series is as good as Forrester's "Hornblower" novels and better than O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin books. Unlike the latter, Kent manages to bring each book to a recognizable conclusion. The characters are well-developed and the plot elements place the reader right in the middle.
Start from the beginning of the series. Have a copy of Kemp's "Oxford Companion to Ships and the Sea" at your elbow. At some point find a Bolitho 12-step group.

Here is an author who clearly knows his subject. What's more, he knows how to bring his characters alive. He fills his pages with enough detail to give you the sense of being there, being a part of the story, without boring you. He knows what to leave out.
Here's action enough for anyone without making the story seem unbelievable. No super hero here, but men that are definitely heroes.

The Bolitho novels are all pretty much formula writing. Don't expect any deep plot lines or twists in the plot. They all pretty much follow the same pattern. In fact, the dialog is actually identical between books in some cases. The battles are pretty much copies of one another. The same "trick" is used in several of the battles to secure victory. The same damage occurs to his ships over and over. The same exact descriptions of death and mayhem are used book after book. Bolitho even picks the same girl to marry twice -- just with another name and age.

That said, the books are good light reading and can be entertaining if you leave enough time between episodes.

Not Patrick O'Brian but pretty good. It's just not as much fun to read. Aubrey loves his position in the Royal Navy and enjoys every minute of it. With Bolitho it's a constant worry, worry, worry as one problem follows another.

If you are a Kent fan this book is as fine as the others and the entire series is a must read. If not and you relish military historical fiction, you should start with the first book in the series because this is book 11. Try it and you won't be disappointed. Kent and O'Brien are masters of the great era of British fighting ships under sale.

A story in the tradition of Hornblower, Aubrey, and Ramage, with non-stop action, realistic descriptions of sailing ship battles, obstinate superiors, loyal followers, and individual intrepidity. Good read, if you like that sort of thing--took me a day.

What I really like is that Mr. Kent knows his history and his sailing ships. Keeps the plausibility factor high, a must in this type of novel. You know that you can't look Captain Bolitho up in Wikipedia, but you feel like you could!
Great series of book. Simply written.......would appeal to high school or Middle school boys...as wall as adults....these ships were very similar to a school, with good guys, bad guys, hero's and bullies, cliques, friends and jerks. A great easy read that has a good plot and good characters that keep it interesting. Very technical about sailing and life aboard these ships in the late 1700's.
