In the tradition of the Hornblower series, In Gallant Company is one of the early books in Kent's Richard Bolitho series. Set during the American Revolutionary years, the novel chronicles Bolitho's rise through the British Navy. The action is peppered with wonderful period details without detracting from the pace, and certainly Kent's ability to create stalwart, living characters is, as always, spot on.Recommended for pure, historical fiction escapism.
