Subject: RE: Help: Patrick O'Brian's Desolation Island
I would never slag off CS Forester. He more or less established this genre (after Marryat, who had sailed with Cochrane). I read them as a kid and the navy of that period has remained a lifelong interest with me. In my personal list CS Forester comes second, after O'Brian.
