Book Description

The great battles in the Mediterranean are over and Ben is asked to assist with the assault on a castle on shore at St. Elmo. He is assigned to a bomb boat and with his friend, Tom Murphy, they learn how to sail the bomb boat and handle the mortars. When Commodore Troubridge is sent to explore Rome, Ben finds himself suddenly left sitting in the hot seat while the commodore returns to his ship. His friend Tom, has considerable trouble with exams and Ben helps him through his stressful Leftenant’s exam.

They sail off to Quiberon Bay and later to Killalla Bay. Some imposters pose as nobility when Ben is sent to escort them to England. Ben and his men end up in a French prison, but Ben wins their freedom when he is able to use his medical knowledge to cure the commandante when he becomes ill with fever. They encounter some African slaves who are marooned on a Caribbean island with little food. This really happened. Things get a bit testy when the Negroes begin to pick off crewmen for dinner from his commander’s ship which has gone aground. A fire ship is mysteriously linked to a problem on one of the islands in the Caribbean. Ben visits the island and learns much about its people and their language of the drums. Book 5 of 9 in The Rundel Series.

1.0 out of 5 stars Author should have kept to his day job 29 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sadly this author is so far adrift in his knowledge of the sea and Nelson's navy that he really should have stayed away.
The book (and the others I bought mistakenly) has poor and unbelievable story lines and while the author tries to impress with his historical tours the navy segments are without reality and defy credulity.

I will give my full review of this series of books after I have read number 9. However i do not think the author has done much research about 18th/19th century European history.

3.0 out of 5 stars Irritating mistakes in the electronic text. 2 Mar. 2015

Irritating mistakes in the electronic text. The story is not fully convincing as too many exploits are undertaken and the high spots are diminished by broad brush description and unlikely outcomes

Haven't finished reading this series yet, but am really enjoying them. Would recommend them to any one who likes reading stories about Navel ships of the 17 and 1800 years.
