“A rousing read, full of invincible characters, deafening broadsides, roaring cannons, and smoking pistols.” Booklist
“The adventure is high and the battle scenes gripping, graphic, and true…Satisfying listening for those who relish derring-do.”  Kliatt
“Cornwell, one of the great naval writers of this era, finds a way to get his intrepid army hero to sea for much of the story—without in the least compromising the high standards of this first-rate series.” Kirkus Reviews
