The youngest captain in His Majesty's Navy, with a reputation for landing impossible assignments, Lord Ramage is dispatched to the Caribbean islands of Martinique and Diamond Rock. The mission seems humdrum: barricade the French within Fort Royal. But sent to sea in the Juno with a crew grown restless and undisciplined under the prior commmand of a drunk, Ramage realizes his vessel may not be up to battle with the French.

Currently a local truck driver who has hours to listen to my audio books. I am hooked, some of my fellow drivers enjoy them also
The way he thinks of trying to always do the unexpected to surpise the enemy
His band of Tridents are a group that any commander would be proud of in a good fight
Mr Crossley is one of the best readers that really do bring the different characters a different personality all their own Keep reading you do a great job
Ramage's Diamond Surpise
I did really enjoy this book and will read more, what can I say I am interested in his career and want to see it to the end.
Give me a spy novel, mystery, history, and a little science and I'm totally happy
Ramage's Diamond is the ultimate. I've read the entire series and can't put them down. Diamond, in particular, provides a great story and reading. I hope the remaining books become available.
It is interesting how Pope can use so many different strategies to bring the desired victories for his hero. To me that is one of the most intriguing parts of Pope's Ramage series. Ramage is able to gain these victories with very little loss of life.
