The Invasion Year is the seventeenth tale in Dewey Lambdin's smashing naval adventure series.

For a fellow like Captain Alan Lewrie, Royal Navy, who despises the French worse than the Devil hates Holy Water, it's hellish-hard to gain a reputation for saving them, not once but twice, when the French refugees from Haiti surrender to England rather than the vengeful ex-slave a

real tedious. very slow, and disappointing.

I read the entire series largely back-to-back (my local public library is well-stocked). One of the great things about this series is that we get to watch Alan Lewrie, the main character, grow up from a callow, self-indulgent teenager to a mature, thoughtful, and responsible adult.
I agree with many other reviews...this particular installment doesn't really have the depth and breadth I have come to expect from Lambdin over the years.
The author has a rich host of characters to expand upon in future books. There is a fair amount of rehash in this book and many loose ends.

The lastest, but not last, in the Alan Lewrie series. Having read the earlier stories, it's like sitting down with an old friend.

Give us more Alan Lewrie, Mr. Lambdin. We need to know how his love live and naval career are progressing. All great stuff!
Not my favorite installment, but it moves the story forward. Looking forward to Sir Alan's next adventure.
Harry Moncelle
Fun book and as an avid Lambdin reader I was not disapointed. I can't wait for the next one!
