Product Description

Product Description

This novel is set during the Napoleonic Wars. Benjamin Rundel fights in the Battle of Cape St. Vincent after a nerve-wracking sail through the French fleet in the fog. He suffers at the hands of a loud Italian lady whom he has been sent to rescue from her French paramours. Her children nearly drive his entire crew crazy. He is there when Commodore Horatio Nelson loses his right arm in battle at Tenerife and later becomes his scribe. He and his crew are captured when their ship is driven ashore during a severe storm. He manages to get them out of the prison and back to their original ship. When his captain panics at the Battle of Camperdown, as first Leftenant, Ben is forced to take over the ship. He fears a court martial and charges of mutiny. Fortunately he is exonerated. Then the captain’s influential family gets him assigned to a mutinous ship. He escapes and survives hardships in the jungle but lives to fight at the Battle of Aboukir Bay. Ben learns about the nobility and politics of Naples during his long stay there with Lord Nelson. The Admiralty sends him off to Egypt to contact two missing informants, but he fails to find them. The explosion of the giant ship, L’Orient, during the Battle of the Nile must have been a spectacle that could never be forgotten for its magnificence and horror. Book 3 of 9 in The Rundel Series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too farfetched 26 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have managed three of this series, and they have become less and less believable as time has passed. I will not be continuing to the other six.

3.0 out of 5 stars whatever happened to 'British'? 6 Mar 2014
By DavidS
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Rundle series is a light, easy read. I have taken most of them on Kindle and yes, there are loads of spelling mistakes, but that is not necessarily the writer's problem - place the blame on the publisher's proof-readers. There are bits 'stolen' from Forester (the cargo of rice becomes a cargo of beans) and from Pope (Ramage's rescue of Italian countess) and doubtless I will find more as the series continues. Rundle is a bit improbable because he always comes up smiling despite the most outrageous trials, but we take that with tongue-in-cheek. What grates on me is the constant use of 'England' and 'English' (labels an American writer every time), when it should be 'British'. Half the fleet was made up of Welsh, Scots and Irish men and all of us who are British but not English, writhe with discomfort at the apparent lack of recognition that the Act of Union which created Britain came 100 years before the time period in which the book is set. Why do all American's seem to assume that Britain consists only of England? They weren't 'English ships' they were 'British ships', so please recognise this for the sake of accuracy and clarity.
This book ended somewhat abruptly and glossed over this clumsily with the excuse that it was an elderly admiral recounting his exploits to a third party and had called it a day....
It is a readable series, but never in the same realms as Forester, Pope, Kent, O'Brian and one of the best of them all but often unsung, Showell Styles.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Unfortunately the author, Beetham Stark, is out of his depth and his stories lack both credulity navy realities of the time
