Customer Review

on February 17, 2008
The Midshipman Prince is part historical novel and part history text. We follow Lieutenant Sidney Smith from the Battle of the Capes to the Battle of the Saints, mostly through the eyes of the fictional character, Lucas Walker. Smith and Walker are assigned to rescue Midshipman William Henry Hanover, third son of George III, from Yorktown and their adventure continues from there.

At times, the story is interrupted slightly with an explanation that puts events into historical context, including things from the every day life of a sailor of the time. I found the book to be an interesting naval adventure, one that gets better as the story progresses. The author seems to find his footing after the characters have been established and I raced through the last half of the book. I am looking forward to reading the next installment in the series.
