These books comprise a nearly seamless professional life of Nathaniel Drinkwater. They are highly satisfying in terms of plotting, use of historical personages and events, and character development. The Royal Navy career of the author lends an authenticity to reactions, settings, and mindsets that make this series stand apart from any other I have read. Woodman's sparce understated prose is perfect for these tales. Another thing I deeply appreciate is that the protagonist is both a good officer and a good, caring man. Hurrah for a leading man who is neither perfect nor a bad boy anti-hero! How refreshing. ( )
