it was amazing
Read in January, 1968

I remember babysitting one night when I was 14 years old. I finished the book I brought with me, one of Howard's "Conan" adventures, and looked around for something else to read. I found Beat to Quarters on the bookshelf, thought that might be all right, and sat down with it. Minutes later I was at sea in the Gulf of Fonseca, in the maintop of HM Frigate Lydia, bearing down on that dry coast with its smoldering volcanoes. It's an adventure in reading I remember with particular fondness because Forester is a consistently good author.
