A Battle Won

A wonderful story! I will look forward to the next book and all that may follow! There are not enough books like this. I do hope this will not be the last we read about Captain Hayden and his crew.

A Battle Won

As a used bookstore owner I have opportunity to indulge my fascination with the tall ships era. I did not know of mr. Russell's writings until a copy of "under Enemy Colors" came through my shop. I have now devoured both books and anxiously await the next novel. I approached the books with some apprehension as after Patrick O'brian's Captain Aubry, Alexander Kent's Richard Bolitho and Forrester's Hornblower I've found Much of the writing of this period sub par. Enter Lt. Charles Hayden and HMS Themis. If he doesn't expire from the sheer weight of his adventures in each novel he should enjoy a nice long career. 3.5 stars

Excellent. Highly recommended

Russell is one of my new favorite authors. This is an excellent follow up to Under Enemy Colors.
