Often compared to the novels of C.S. Forester and Patrick O'Brian, Dewey Lambdin's historical fiction series follows the naval adventures of Alan Lewrie. Starting as a young midshipman in The King's Coat, Lewrie rises in the ranks and sees some of the greatest naval battles of the American Revolution and Napoleonic Wars. In the worthy tradition of Hornblower, Aubrey, and Maturin, his exploits echo with the sounds of crowded ports and the crash of naval warfare. An officer and a rogue, Alan Lewrie is the ultimate man of adventure.
