The First Book in the Sir Sidney Smith Nautical Advnture

How do you keep a prince alive when the combined forces of three nations (and a smattering of privateers) want him dead? Worse, how do you do it when his life is in the hands of a 17 year old lieutenant, an alcoholic college professor, and a woman who has fired more naval guns than either of them?

Form the Battle of Capes, which sealed the fate of Yorktown, to the Battle of the Saints, which shaped the fate of the Caribbean, The Midshipman Prince will take you on a wild ride through 18th Century nautical history.

The Sir Sidney Smith Series is based on the life of Admiral Sir Sidney Smith (1764-1840)

"His portrayal of the Battle of the Saints is off the charts. It's the best description of an Age of Sail sea battle I've ever read."

..".he (Grundner) is certainly in a league with Julian Stockwin and Dewey Lambdin; and has a style that is refreshingly different from any of the above."

..".a rich, colorful, bawdy tale of the seas. It captured my attention and held it... with just the right amount of suspense and action to sail to a climatic ending."

About the Author:

TOM GRUNDNER is a retired college professor who is perhaps best known as the editor behind Tom Wishon's best-selling "Search for..." series of golf books. Despite the tremendous success of those books, he describes his "first love" as writing about the 18th Century Royal Navy.

Dr. Grundner is the author of The Ramage Companion, the companion book to Dudley Pope's 18-volume Ramage nautical adventure series. Among his other works, he is also the author of The Midshipman Prince and HMS Diamond, the first two books of a nautical adventure series based on the life of Sir Sidney Smith.

He lives in Tucson, AZ.
