Novelists, like historians, are storytellers. Unlike historians, however, they find the elements of plot and suspense not in libraries and archives but in their own imaginations. Bill White is one of those few novelists who is comfortable both in the world of imagination as well as amongst books and dusty manuscripts. In The Greater the Honor he weaves an imaginative tale of young men in war set against an historical background that is accurate in nearly every detail.

"Their adventures ... challenge Jack Aubrey and Horatio Hornblower and they are all the more impressive because their story is true." --William Fowler, Ph.D., Director Massachusetts Historical Society
