9780099493877: To Glory We Steer (Richard Bolitho)

H.M.S. Phalarope is ordered to the Caribbean but the most deadly enemy is already aboard her.

January 1782, Portsmouth: His Britannic Majesty's frigate Phalarope is ordered to the assistance of the hard-pressed squadrons in the Carribean. Aboard is her new commander — Richard Bolitho. To all appearances the Phalarope is everything a young captain could wish for. But beneath the surface she is a deeply unhappy ship — her wardroom torn by petty greed and ambition, her deckhands driven to near-mutiny by senseless ill-treatment...

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:

[Editor's Note: The following is a combined reviwe with PASSAGE TO MUTINY.]--Kent, which was a nom de plume of the late Douglas Reeman, here has created the nautical world of Captain Richard Bolitho that is every bit as exciting as the ones created by Forster and the late O'Brian. In these two works, Bolitho goes from the West Indies to the South Pacific, taking on pirates, the elements, the French and the Rebels from America, and assorted others. There is plenty of action, and the works display the author's intimate knowledge of naval lore and life. Michael Jayston reads with seeming ease. His narrative is fine and by itself a joy to hear--clear, crisp, even-paced. His vocal characterizations in both recordings are also superb. To give such a wide range of characters consistent and believable accents is a feat for which Jayston is to be commended.

Book Description Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The time is January 1782, and British Captain Richard Bolitho is ordered to take the frigate Phalarope to the Caribbean, where the hard-pressed royal squadrons are fighting for their lives against the combined fleets of France and Spain and the upstart American privateers. It should have been a proud moment for so young and junior a captain - but the Phalarope has already been driven to near mutiny and she is regarded with shame and suspicion. But Bolitho is no ordinary man. His determination is blended with humanity, and his efforts to give the ship back her pride mark him apart from his contemporaries. As the little frigate sails under the blazing sun and fights her inner battles as well as faces the bloody broadsides of the enemy, Bolitho spares neither himself nor his men - and in the final great battle of the Saintes the chance comes to prove what both he and the Phalarope can achieve.
