The Bolitho Novels
In the Great Age of Sail, Richard Bolitho serves in the British Royal Navy in defense of the country he loves. From his earliest years as a young midshipman, Bolitho moves up the ranks, proving his leadership and courage in the face of brutal seas and raking broadsides. He is joined in his adventures by a rich cast of characters—friends and enemies he has made along the way—as together they fight against an ever-changing roster of sea powers: France, Spain, Denmark, Holland and even the young and unexpectedly dangerous United States.
