"Hardy's rough and tumble salty sea-dog tone is perfect." (Evening Standard)
"Unlike most sea writers, Mr. O'Brian has humour and human nature at his command as well as high adventure. There is good history, fascinating erudition, espionage, romance, fever in the hold, wreck in lost latitudes, and an action at sea that for sheer descriptive power can match anything in sea fiction." (The Guardian)
