    1. Interesting story based on the incident published in the Fourth Edition of Steel's Naval chronologist of the Late War published in 1806, in which the island of Curacao was surrendered to the Nereid in September of 1800.



    2. Ramage would have been a pirate or bucaneer had he been boron in the early eighteen hundreds. This one has Ramage going after privateers on the Spanish Main, but as usual things don't go as planned. This one has duplicity on the part of people that Ramage is trying to help in a crisis. There is a revenge element to the story that does show how men can be effected by the horrors of war. Anyone, who reads stories like this, will enjoy this story.


    3. This was a disappointing read. The series seems to be becoming a soap opera ala Alexander Kent's Bolitho series. Lord Ramage, as usual, is far and away the most clever character in the book. He can outwit career politicians and tell trained marines how to do their jobs even he admits ignorance to land tactics. It' just too much to accept.


    4. The first of the Ramage books - all of which are exciting and well written. The Ramage series ranks 3rd with me behind Hornblower and Bolitho for age of sail excitement. Ramage is just a little too good and nothing is impossible


    5. Another really good Lord Ramage historical novel--Pope continues to find new ways for Ramage to confound the French, the Spanish and now the Dutch . . .
