The editor of Quarterdeck Magazine, George Jepson, has kindly featured an essay that I wrote on the Seven Years War as a historical background to the Carlisle and Holbrooke Naval Adventures. You can read it in the summer 2018 edition of Quarterdeck magazine. which can be downloaded here:
The essay is on page 12 of the magazine.
On page 16 you can read a review of ‘The Leeward Islands Squadron.’
Thank you, George!
