Publisher's Summary

The scene is Gibraltar, 1793. The gathering might of revolutionary France prepares to engulf Europe in another bloody war. As in the past, Britain will stand or fall by the fighting power of her fleet. For Richard Bolitho, the renewal of hostilities means a fresh command and the chance of action.

Great Listen

I've read this book a score of times since high school, but the reader made it come alive again. Can't wait to listen to others in the series!

Compares well with Master and Commander series.

Would you listen to Form Line of Battle! again? Why?

No, but only because there are several more in the series and I am hooked.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes
