A Rollicking Tale
I am now at book four in the John Pearce series and I am happy I discovered David Donachie.
The year is 1793 and John Pearce and friends have just returned from a successful mission in Corsica. The siege of Toulon is escalating in violence and the Revolutionary Army is preparing to attack. Pearce has been assigned to escort five thousand radical French sailors to a port on the Atlantic coast, where there are to be set free. As you can predict, the assignment goes awry.
The book is well written and well researched. Donachie brilliantly combines a gripping adventure with intricate historical detail of the French Revolution, in this case the Siege of Toulon, to explosive effect.
If you enjoy a good Royal Navy story set during the Napoleonic Wars this is a book for you. Peter Wickham narrated the book.
