    1 thought on “With All Despatch

    1. Bolitho is still reeling from the death of Viola Raymond and his bout with fever. But he is coming back strong to solve a problem of vicious smugglers, who were some of them sailors from the Royal Navy. Then to top it off he and his coxswain, John Allday have to deal with treachery from within in the Navy. By the end of the book Bolitho has solved most of the smuggling problem and dealt with a traitor to England. But he has lost command of a squadron of cutters and now has command of a large shi [...]

    2. Spring, 1792, and Richard Bolitho is seeking to return to the active duty. He has recovered from the fever that he contacted in his Pacific adventures. He is given command of three top sail cutters to combat rampant smuggling between England and the continent. The situation is complicated because of the influencial people involved in the smuggling as well as the developing situation in France during the Revolution and nearing war between England and France. Not as much naval action as others in [...]

    3. I wish I knew where the wooden-ship kick came from. Maybe it's the appeal of running away to a simpler life. Maybe it's the clarity - your life was on the ship, the people you knew were on the ship, your death was likely on the ship. Maybe it's the lack of options - many sailors were press-ganged. Maybe it's the history major buried down below the geologist and the compsci major. Either way, I find myself getting drawn into these series.

    4. My first exposure to an Alexander Kent book and it was a fairly enjoyable experience. The story is short and there are many scenes of seafaring action which the author writes with aplomb. We watch as ships of war tear each other apart and villains are dispatched gruesomely. All through this, the stern and darkly brooding Bolitho and his faithful companion Allday manage to overcome all manner of adversity.The plot is fairly complex with many peripheral characters. There's conspiracy afoot, with m [...]

    5. I don't want to be too hard on Kent. I was disappointed with this book because he was recommended to me as similar to Patrick O'Brian, and he's not of the same stature. I enjoyed the naval battle towards the endbut the plot development - and I can often be content with a good action writer - seemed awkward and shallow, and the characters likewise. In his defence, I picked this up for $5 in a bargain bin, so maybe it's not his best - it does seem to be a bit of a series filler during a time of pe [...]

    6. This is a Naval Fiction Book set in 1792 & there are previous books in this seriesSo now I will have to read the others.ally enjoyed the war between England & France involving Richard Bolitho with his small flotilla of three topsail cutters and searching for the most brutal gang of smugglers England has ever knownBrilliant Reading

    7. Man merkt dem Buch ab, dass es in die Chronologie gestopft wurde. Stil und Figurencharakterisierung brechen teilweise mit dem vorhergehenden. Die komplexere Hintergrundgeschichte wird vermutlich auch nicht wieder aufgegriffen

    8. I didn't love this as much. I could figure out what Allday was doing half the time, and overall it was kind of glum.

    9. With all Dispatch Alexander Kent19th century British naval story. If you like C S Forresters Hornblower series you like this. Gave this book 4 stars

    10. Too much emphasis on just how the ships worked, and not enough on the story line. I'm sure those who are more familiar with sailing ships would like it better.
