    1. Llevo navegando con Bolitho desde que era un guardamarina en el Gorgon. He luchado en las costas norteamericanas en la Guerra de Sucesión, contra los franceses durante la Revolución, con y contra los españoles según el baile de alianzas durante el convulso principio del siglo XIX. He conocido a sus mujeres, sus amigos y enemigos. Juntos nos hemos enfrentado a las borrascas del Canal, a las calmas ecuatoriales, a la niebla y al humo de los combates a tocapenoles. He sido "uno de los pocos". P [...]

    2. # 17 in the British naval officer Richard Bolitho series. Novel covers the period 1804 to the end of 1805 with Bolitho in command of a squadron.

    4. Of all the novels I have read in this series, this one seems to focus on the personal lives of Admiral Bolitho and the people around him. Separated from his wife, he reconnects with an old flame that he known years ago. The rumors and gossip around this new relationship endanger friendships with many of closest friends - primarily with Admiral Thomas Herrick. But meanwhile, his friend and coxswain, John Allday, remains stalwart by his side.The time is 1804 and 1805. Admiral Bolitho is first orde [...]

    5. One of the better Bolitho books with plenty of action and more insight into the main character. Much enjoyed.
