Another top flight tale from Mr Kent!

I don't know why I even bother to post reviews of Mr Kent's Books about Richard Bolitho!
I invariably rave about them & the first class narration of Michael Jayston!
All I can say is, if you are interested in the sea warfare of this era, then you will be enthralled by this series.
