The Royal Navy at its best.

I have always been a fan of naval fiction. Reman got it just right. I could feel the cold and wet of an open bridge, almost taste the hot, bitter coffee that for the watch standers was warming nectar, and remember wardrooms at sea. The combat scenes were perfect—the adrenaline, the confusion, the pinhole pictures with time at almost a standstill. Bravo Zulu. Well done!
