About the Author:

Captain Frederick Marryat was an actual 19th-century British Naval hero who lived a saga worthy of the novels of C.S. Forester or Patrick O'Brian. Captain Marryat survived fifty naval battles and served on the crack frigate ImpŽrieuse under Lord Cochrane-the real-life model for Horatio Hornblower and Jack Aubrey.

Review:

". . . [Marryat's] greatness is undeniable" -- Joseph Conrad

"Marryat has the power to set us in the midst of ships and men and sea and sky all vivid, credible, authentic." -- Virginia Woolf

"This was Marryat's navy, his world, and no one brings it to us with greater authenticity." -- Alexander Kent

"When all your Patrick O'Brians are out, recommend Marryat." -- Library Journal
