A bit disappointed in the second of this series. Historically, these are top-notch. Characters are interesting and the relationships are fascinating, but not fully developed. This is a good series for those who are interested in WWI naval history and want to see a serious illumination of historical circumstances. Entertaining, but a far shot from Patrick O'Brien.
This is the second book in the Nick Everard series of naval battles in WWI. Nick moves from being Executive Officer of a destroyer to his own command at age 22. There is lots of action, although sometimes confusing. Nick is a likeable person and seems to be making fast progress in the navy in spite of having troubles with some of his commanders.
Nicholas Everard, blooded at the Battle of Jutland and from taking part in numerous offensive patrols in the English Channel, volunteers to take part in an audacious attack against the German U-boat base at Zeebrugge, Belgium, in the spring of 1918.
