‘If you like Hornblower and Aubrey/Maturin, you’ll like Captain Carlisle/ Holbrooke.’
‘Seven Years War British naval fiction excellently done.’
‘The main character is unusual in being a colonial (or as he describes himself, an American) serving as a Post Captain in the Royal Navy; a nice twist that hopefully will be developed as the timeline grows closer to the Revolutionary War. Good stuff !
‘An excellent novel of the wooden ships and iron men genre. The Seven Years War naval campaign is not well covered in historical fiction. Most recommended.’
