About the Author:

Douglas Reeman (Alexander Kent) did convoy duty in the Atlantic, the Arctic and the North Sea. He has written over thirty novels under his own name and more than twenty bestselling historical novels featuring Richard Bolitho under the pseudonym Alexander Kent.

From AudioFile:

A young and earnest Captain Richard Bolitho bravely faces the shot and ball thrown at his British ship by American patriots, managing one narrow escape by sailing over a shallow bar. Michael Jayston's raspy voice is deep and sure of itself as it spins these sea yarns. In the way of a good storyteller, he sometimes gets excited or takes on an accent, but he always stays easily understood. The author's muse contributes "tightly reefed topsails, the clank of pumps, and the smell of gun smoke in battle" to provide the narrator with stories of the Revolutionary War that are both educational and in good taste.

Book Description Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. For the young Richard Bolitho the spring of 1778 marked a complete transformation for himself and his future. It was the year in which the American War of Independence changed to an all-out struggle for freedom from British rule - and the year when Bolitho took command of the Sparrow, a small, fast and well-armed sloop of war. As the pace of war increased, the Sparrow was called from one crisis to another - and when the great fleets of Britain and France convened on the Chesapeake, Bolitho had to throw aside the early dreams of his first command to find maturity in a sea battle that might decide the fate of a whole continent.
