The structure and plot are eerily similar to books by Douglas Reeman (and none the worse for that): a self-effacing hero under the command of an incompetent senior officer, wearily resigned to his fate; unsuitable ship and weapons; a crew initially fragmented and unwilling, brought quickly to extreme loyalty; a seemingly impossible mission; and a little romance saved by the honourable hero.
Love the character of Captain Smith as always the best are flawed.
On to book number 3.
When he uncovers evidence of a secret German operation he finds no one will listen and he's forced to take action on his own.
Ship of Force moves at a cracking pace and displays impressive levels of historical detail whether it's in the action at sea or in the depiction of a Gotha raid on London.
It suffers from the common curse of poorly corrected OCR copy but if you can overlook that it's an entertaining read.
Alan Evans takes the plot of "The Riddle of the Sands" (published in 1903) but passes it as his own. Instead of sailing ships and rowing boats we have steam.
I enjoyed "Thunder at Dawn" but was very disapponted in "Ship of Force"
