Lots of adventure, a little romance, splendid history and some hair-raising nautical scenes. Jan Wandelaar is a young tugboat deck hand who earns a chance to attend navigation school in the early days of Holland’s ocean-going tugboat industry. The book charts his rapid rise to captain, with wonderful insights into the challenge of command and life at sea towing huge cargoes through towering waves.

This is Jan de Hartog's first novel and it’s not as strong as some of his later works, but his stor

Prachtig boek over de Nederlandse sleepvaart. En ik ben Nederlander genoeg om daar trots op te zijn. Jan de Wandelaar, die het schopt van matroos tot eigenaar/kapitein van een zeesleper, staat model voor de Hollandse zeeman met zijn liefde voor de zee, en heeft eigenlijk best een romantische inslag. Eerlijk gezegd wist ik helemaal niet dat het in de oorlogsjaren was uitgegeven. "Schipper naast God" vind ik zo een mooie uitdrukking. En het ruwe van het zeeleven, de liefde van de zeelieden voor hu ...more

Typische zeemans-roman. Start vrij vlot, in een goede vertellende vaart, maar verliest zich dan in gespecialiseerde zeevaarttaal, doorspekt met eigen neologismen. Nog typisch: de sentimentele saus. Opgegeven na 100 blz.
