A Ship of War
An absolute Blast
As I travel a lot, I wouldn't normally get the time to read the book, but in this case I have. The Audio version is a great deal of fun and very enjoyable.
Nice continuation of the prior novels - can't wait for the next instalment.
Confusion to our enemies and down with the French !
