Sail in Napoleonic war with the Royal Navy
on 20 April 2014
A far ranging book covering an interesting time for the Navy.
However I found it disappointing, the characters are superficial the action is like a black and white picture, no depth of subtlety to it. Everything happens too easily. Everyone likes the hero, he gas no enemies, no losses or reverses and there us no depth to the story.
Disappointing is the only word for it
