Publisher Description

Portsmouth, 1782. His Britannic Majesty's frigate, Phalarope, is ordered to assist the hard-pressed squadrons in the Caribbean. Aboard is her new commander—Richard Bolitho. To all appearances the Phalarope is everything a young captain could wish for, but beneath the surface she is a deeply unhappy ship—her wardroom torn by petty greed and ambition, her deckhands suspected of cowardice under fire and driven to near-mutiny by senseless ill-treatment.

The First of a Great Series

To Glory We Steer was Alexander Kent’s first Bolitho novel. It set the tone for a series that extended over 25 novels. If you like the sea battle type of story from the Age of Fighting Sail, the Bolitho novels are must-read.

This opening novel sets the stage and the pattern for what follows. One can argue that these novels are formulaic and not overly deep. But they tell a good yarn and create memorable characters. I have always enjoyed these old friends, and Kent’s earlier novels are stronger than the later ones.
