Being an ex-Artificer myself it is apparent that the author has written this with a big "chip" on his shoulder, especially when he constantly refers to the "officers" as "pigs" ! Yes, you will always come across those with an arrogant attitude, but they were generally the young ones straight out of Dartmouth, with still a lot to learn.
Speaking to some of my old RN mates who have read this book, they all agree that it does not reflect the typical RN Tiffy !
It's a pity, I was looking forward to a good read.
