Kydd Books

by Jekyll on Jun 4, 2009

Have just finished this book and have really enjoyed all the books in this series. I am in the process of obtaining the next one in the series and have recommended the "Kydd"books to several friends. Look forward to the next one.

The book "Quarterdeck" reminds me of the great sea tales written in the manner of C.S Forester's Hornblower series and O'Brian's Jack Aubrey. This is but one volume of author Julian Stockwin series in which he traces the life of pressed seaman Thomas Kydd as he advances from ordinary seaman to officer in the British Royal Navy in the great age of sail. It brings vivid life to the every day existence of the officers and men aboard ship in peace and war. This is the sixth volume in a series of eight of the adventures of Thomas Kydd. Everyone who loves stories of the sea will enjoy this series.
