Listeners familiar with the order "Clear the decks for action" will find no disappointment as Lord Cochrane does battle with enemy sailing ships during the Napoleonic Wars. Broadsides, fire ship attacks, and the lee shore in heavy winds offered doom or prize money to the British sailors who took the risks. John Lee's deep, booming voice and skill with every accent make him the ideal narrator for an audiobook swimming in a sea of nineteenth-century nautical words. His well-oiled British English segues into Scots for the captain and into French and Spanish for the ships and ports. He shouts orders involving parts of the ship and points of the compass in the practiced manner of any salty seaman of those times. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
