User Review  - Victoria Wodarcyk - Goodreads

A new series for me, like Hornblower and Aubrey/Maturin. I don't think these are going to be quite as good, but I'll still read them. The first one was pretty good, just not quite the same quality as the other two series. Read full review

About the author (2000)

Dudley Pope, a naval defense correspondent of the London Evening News, progressed to writing carefully researched naval history. C.S. Forester urged Pope to try his hand at fiction and saw the younger writer as his literary heir. Pope began what was to become an impressive series with Ramage (1965) and, over the next 24 years, produced 17 more novels tracing Lord Ramage's career. Pope died in 1997.
