Now this was naval action
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on April 26, 2017
The first three books in this series were good stories, but they just seemed to lack the naval action found in other books about the Age of Sail. This one makes up for that in a big way, Fletcher has made it to the position of Post Captain in the British Navy at an accelerated rate, which was unusual however not unheard of. This time Fletcher is involved in an operation to stop the French from developing steam power to aid their invasion of England. Big spoiler here they stop the French plan of invasion in its tracks. How they do this can only be told by reading the book. If you like stories set during the Napoleonic wars then pick up a copy and read a great action story in this book.
