Publisher's Summary

New York, 1777. As the American Revolution rages on the mainland, the British Navy prepares for action at sea. Against a growing fleet of American and French privateers, the Navy must maintain its blockade of Washington's vital military supplies. Caught up in the turmoil, junior officer Richard Bolitho finds himself having to make momentous decisions in the heat of battle, decisions that will affect the lives of many men, and perhaps the outcome of history.

A different side of the Ameican Revoltion

Would you listen to In Gallant Company again? Why?

It was interesting and I enjoyed the story line, We all know the outcome but alot of brave men on both sides

What other book might you compare In Gallant Company to and why?

It has a small slice of history of the Royal Navy, not sure which one to compare it to.

What does Michael Jayston bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Mr Jayston is one of my favorite readers and he brings to life the different characters with a very professional style, Enjoy his style and look forward to listening to many more

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Birth of a nation and gallant men who fought and died

Any additional comments?

I will read all of Mr Kents books I enjoy them for the action and personal emotions he builds into his many charactors

What a waste of book listening time

This book was to be about the British navy side of the Revolutionary war. however there is no mention of the continental navy. What a waste of my book listing time.
