To those who are drawn to the age and especially to aficionados of O'Brian's work, I would recommend Robert Harvey's Cochrane. --The Times Literary Supplement
An entertaining and compulsive read. --The Sunday Telegraph
a wonderfully readable book....Robert Harvey convincingly argues, it is Cochrane's exploits that give birth to the fictional genre of Napoleonic sea-adventures. --The Independent
