The very best possible historical writer
narrated (if you choose to listen) by the best reader imaginable.
O'Brian spent most of his life researching the Royal Navy
and the high level of his achievement was honoured by a knighthood.
Every order, every punishment, every illicit adventure in these books
is supported by ship's logs, Admiralty records, and letters from the front.
If you love the sea, if you admire admire painstaking research,
or if you simply enjoy losing yourself in a tale well told
you will love this enduring series.
