In a daring foray, under the very nose of the French Mediterranean fleet, Lieutenant Lord Nicholas Ramage is to sail his tiny cutter close in to the Italian shore and rescue a party of stranded aristocrats from Napoleon's fast-advancing army.
If you could sum up Ramage in three words, what would they be?
Napoleonic naval warfare
What other book might you compare Ramage to, and why?
Julian Stockwins Thomas Kydd series, they are written in the same era and similar situational placing, Hornblower characters, which I like.
What does Steven Crossley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
He has reasonable characterisation and good narration inflections for the different situations almost on a parr with Christian Rodska and that is a compliment.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
