ď[A] robust sequel to A Sailor of Austria . . . Skillfully mixing derring-do with tragedy as well as stringent wit, Biggins offers a vivid catalogue of world history 1909-1918 . . . This is engaging fare-reminiscent of George M. Fraser's Flashman series, but darker." óPublishers Weekly

ďBiggins writes with a fine sense of the sea and a truly marvelous wit.Ē --Booklist
