For fans of Patrick O'Brien, this book provides welcome non-fiction, if enthusiastic, coverage of the British Navy and officers like Jack Aubrey around the turn of the 19th century. The accounts of Howe's resupply of Gibraltar and skirmishes with the French off the coast of America are especially gripping.
