The Fortune of War (Vol. Book 6) (Aubrey/Maturin Novels)
"A marvellously full-flavoured, engrossing book, which towers over its current rivals in the genre like a three-decker over a ship's longboat."—Times Literary SupplementCaptain Jack Aubrey, R. N., arrives in the Dutch East Indies to find himself appointed to the command of the fastest and best-armed frigate in the Navy. He and his friend Stephen Maturin take passage for England in a dispatch vessel. But the War of 1812 breaks out while they are en route. Bloody actions precipitate them both into new and unexpected scenes where Stephen's past activities as a secret agent return on him with a vengeance.

This begins my favorite part of the Aubrey/Maturin series. Jack's expertise at sea is only rivaled by his calamitous personal entanglements ashore as a POW of the Yanks during the War of 1812. Read full review
