Reviews

"Haley is an erudite historian who can craft fiction so real that you're ready to pull the grapeshot-packed 18-pounder's lanyard... Another real-enough-to-be-true, rollicking tale from the days of sail and sword." -- Kirkus Reviews "Haley's enthralling blend of well-drawn characters, nautical combat, and period detail will appeal to both Patrick O'Brian and American history enthusiasts." -- Booklist "[O]ne discovers many little-known facts in this exciting and informative book. ...Strongly recommended." -- Historical Novels Review "The history is thoroughly researched, the fiction inventive, the style at once easygoing and rapid....This is a marvelous and richly enjoyable novel, and the intended series to follow promises to do for the American Navy and the Marines what C.S. Forester and Patrick O'Brian did for the Royal Navy....More, please." -Wall Street Journal on The Shores of Tripoli
