Praise for the Bolitho series:

"Kent's winning hero is Richard Bolitho, who is squarely in the tradition of Captain Hornblower and Midshipman Easy. All of the heroic elements are here... Good, solid stuff that still packs a wallop." --The New York Times

"All the briny echoes of fictional marine heroes can be heard again in these rip-rousing tales of naval warfare... as the stalwart Bolitho gains the trust of his crew and admiration of his superiors." --The Saturday Evening Post

"For all who like adventure and sea battles; for all who would like to escape to the 18th century—follow Bolitho..." --Library Journal
